Praying from James 3:3 relating to Obedience, Control, Guidance.

Dear Lord, just as we put bits into the horses’ mouths to guide them, please guide me and help me to obey your will. May my whole being be aligned with your purpose and may I follow your lead in all that I do. Amen.

Verse: Indeed, we put bits into the horses’ mouths so that they may obey us, and we guide their whole body.
James 3:3

This is a Command. The verse is instructing the reader to use bits to control horses, and by extension, to use discipline and guidance to control their own actions and behavior.
