The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity. —– Proverbs 11:3 (New International Version)
Dearest Abba, Yahweh, I worship You and bow before You in reverence, because, O Yahweh, You are a consuming fire and a jealous God. You are not mocked. You desire truth and faithfulness in my inward being. You search my heart and examine my mind. Abba, nothing is hidden from Your sight. Everything lie bare before You. Help me not be double-minded in serving You. Help me keep my integrity before You. Help me be mindful to please You with my thoughts, words, and attitude. Help me be prompt in heeding to Your instructions and obey them wholeheartedly. Give me grace and wisdom to submit myself completely under Your authority. Help me not be conformed to the ways of this world, but set me apart for being a worthy vessel unto Your service. Help me not be swayed by the base desires of my body, but keep it honorable and holy as a perpetual sacrifice acceptable before the throne of Your presence. Help me not behave like a heathen who does not know You. Help me not just display an outward normalcy and reject inwardly Your eternal power and Your existence and character. Give me grace and anointing of Your Holy Spirit to glorify You as God always and be thankful to You for Who You are. Help me not become futile in my thoughts. Abba, I need You. If I have ever needed You, O Father, it is now. Don’t pass me by. I cannot do this alone. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
