Distasteful is the polite way of saying odious, offensive, repulsive, disgusting, and objectionable.
Have your New Year’s Resolutions flown the coop already? It might help to pray for your problem to become odious or distasteful to you.
Are you a smoker? Trying to lose weight? Addicted to sugar? Overcome with gossiping? Funny, they all involve our mouth; well now.
Pray that God guards your mouth from what ever goes in or out of it. Pray, pray and pray again! Pray, but be specific.
Pray that cigarettes and cigarette smoke become repulsive to you. Ask God to change your taste buds. Pray that second helpings be offensive to you or upset your stomach.
Set a guard, O Lord, before my mouth; keep watch at the door of my lips. (Psalm 141:3, AMP)
Prayer – Lord, set a guard on my lips, Lord. Make _____________ distasteful to me. Please let the actions of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart be acceptable to you. Amen (from Psalm 19:14)
