“Incline my heart to Your testimonies and not to dishonest gain. Turn away my eyes from looking at vanity, and revive me in Your ways. Establish Your word to Your servant, as that which produces reverence for You.” (Psalm 119:36-38)
Lord, You know that the living of life takes time. Not just those things humans often think of as dishonest gain, but also matters of the heart. Keep me on the right path, taking as long as You know it needs to take, that I would now and forever walk in Your statutes. Guide me, O Lord, in the way of truth that I may walk in Your ways. You have promised to establish Your word in me.
Lord, You know the places where I struggle. You know where there is need. Guide me, O Lord, in the way of truth that I may abide in You. Help me through all the obstacles that are in the way that I may now and always live according to Your word. Do not let me stray from Your promises, but walk now and forever in the truth You have established from the beginning.
Lord Jesus, You have spoken and told us that You are the way, truth and life. Lead me, O Lord, in the way You have established and keep me from seeking any shortcuts. (There are no shortcuts and You know all that is needed.) Guide me, O Lord, according to the Father’s will to walk now and forever in the way of righteousness. Grow in me a willing faith that always seeks You and Your righteousness. Amen.
