Lord, when this country seems to be fleeing from You, give me courage to stand tall in Your grace. With my words. My actions. My deeds.
Lord, when my tongue gets quick and sharp and pierces the ears and hearts of those I love, be even quicker and softer to heal the wounds. Theirs. And mine.
Lord, when I want to be selfish with my very own self and my very own stuff, direct my heart with Your Truth–all I am and I have is from You. Help me to use it for Your Kingdom.
Lord, let my integrity be a reflection of You and Your Truth.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
implies you do what is right
when no one is looking
or when everyone is compensating.”
