Luke 1:22

“When he came out, he could not speak to them. They realized he had seen a vision in the temple, for he kept making signs to them but remained unable to speak.”

Ezekiel 3:26

“I will make your tongue stick to the roof of your mouth so that you will be silent and unable to rebuke them, for they are a rebellious people.”

Daniel 10:15-17

“While he was saying this to me, I bowed with my face toward the ground and was speechless. 16 Then one who looked like a man touched my lips, and I opened my mouth and began to speak. I said to the one standing before me, ‘I am overcome with anguish because of the vision, my lord, and I feel very weak. 17 How can I, your servant, talk with you, my lord? My strength is gone and I can hardly breathe.’”

There are times in our lives when something happens and we are left speechless. Certainly, in the Presence of God we are likely to be speechless for a time as I am sure we will be overcome with the Majesty and Beauty of our Loving King.

I can be pretty talkative, especially about God. Yet, there are times when I am overcome with thankfulness and adoration for Him saving someone like the very ungodly person I once was, and I don’t know how to express my feelings in normal speech. In times like these, I utilize my prayer language in prayer and praise. The Spirit knows how to pray and praise for me. See Romans 8:26-28.


If you don’t have a heaven-sent love and prayer language, ask our Father. See Luke 11:11-13.
