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.
The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry; the face of the Lord is against those who do evil, to cut off the memory of them from the earth.
Lord God, may I realize more my dependence on you for the joys of life. I pray that as I accept your gifts I will not neglect to take the peace and happiness which you give with them. Grant that I may have the bright hope and cheerful courage that is the experience of power and truth. Amen.
"Through Christ and scriptures, you will find hope and redemption."
