Please God, Guard My...Mouth??

I was davening Mincha before and when I got to E-lokai Netzor, I started thinking about what I was saying: "E-lokai netzor lishoni meira, usifasai medabeir mirma vago'--My God, guard my toungue from evil, and my lips from speaking deceitfully etc."


We actually ask Him to guard us from lashon hara.

How many of us realize what we're saying? How many of us just go through davening like a robot, not thinking about what we're saying (notice how I say "us," I do it too...)? We actually ask Him, please, let us not speak lashon hara.


If only we knew what we were saying...
