How to Fight a Foul Mouth with Bible Verses

September 2015 Update: How to Fight a Foul Mouth with Bible Verses 2nd Edition is now available.

Regardless of whether you are always cursing or swearing and using the Lord’s name in vain or you are prone to lying or using profanities, obscenities or abusive language, understand that you have to combine spiritual, mental, verbal and physical interventions to form your own holistic deliverance ministry to fight your foul mouth and learn how to stop swearing.

The first spiritual intervention is to pray and ask God to help you clean your dirty mouth. As you pray, use Scriptures since Bible verses are the foundation of any deliverance ministry and Christian spiritual warfare because the Word of God is the Sword of the Spirit that God has given us to fight with. (Ephesians 6:17) Therefore, we will call the Scriptures that we will use to fight for your tongue SWORD WORDS.

SWORD WORDS that you can use as personal deliverance prayers include:
1. Father God, help me so that no corrupt word will proceed out of your mouth, but only what is good for necessary edification so that it may impart grace to the hearers. (Adapted Ephesians 4:29)

2. Father God, help me so that my speech will always be graceful and seasoned with salt so that I may know how I ought to answer everyone. (Adapted Colossians 4:6)

3. Father God, help me and let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O God, my strength and my Redeemer. (Psalm 19:14)

As you pray, believe that God will help you since having faith in God and in His Word is how you hold up your shield of faith which is one of our spiritual weapons and the weapon that is able to quench all the fiery darts of the enemy. (Ephesians 6:16)

In addition to praying for yourself, ask your Pastor to pray for you and attend Deliverance services so that you can learn different spiritual warfare prayers and receive deliverance for your mouth from vulgarity.

After praying, put on the helmet of salvation since it is one of the weapons of our warfare being part of the armor of God that we need to put on to fight our spiritual battles. (Ephesians 6:14-17)

All you need to put on this helmet of salvation is to say with your mouth that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead when He died for our sins and you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)

The next spiritual step, which also doubles up as a mental step, is to remove all negative thoughts from your mind since A good person out of the good treasure of their heart brings forth good and an evil person out of the evil treasure of their heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart their mouth speaks. (Luke 6:45)

Therefore, meditate on whatsoever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, virtuous and praise worthy (Philippians 4:8) so that you can fill your mind with a treasure of true, honest, just, pure, lovely, virtuous and praise worthy thoughts from which true, honest, just, pure, lovely, virtuous and praise worthy words will flow from instead of cursing words, profanities and lies.
