In your anger do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent.
--Psalm 4:4 New International Version (NIV)
Heavenly Father, save me from being so poor in spirit that I will have to be sustained by the bright spirits of others. May I be continually refreshed by the spirit of life that may be found at all times. Amen.
I will maintain my righteousness and never let go of it; my conscience will not reproach me as long as I live.
--Job 27:6 New International Version (NIV)
My Father, may I consider the place in which I stand and may I not be deceived in thinking I am near you while I am living far away. Teach me the way to draw nearer to you each day, until my spirit may continually dwell with you. Amen.
He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart and has no slander on his tongue, who does his neighbor no wrong and casts no slur on his fellowman, who despises a vile man but honors those who fear the Lord, who keeps his oath even when it hurts, who lends his money without usury and does not accept a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things will never be shaken.
--Psalm 15:2-5 New International Version (NIV)
Lord God, I bless you for the lives of men and women who are willing to be led by the truth, and who are worthy to follow you. I pray that you will make me truthful, and keep me steadfast, that none may go astray by the uncertainty of my way. Amen.
"Through Christ and scriptures, you will find hope and redemption."
