Finding the Right Path

Dear Lord,

Please send your Holy Spirit to help me keep my heart vigilent on you. I've learned that where my heart is, my actions will follow. Help me stop using derogatory words and put devious talk far from me. Instead, I pray that my eyes look directly forward and on you at all times. I will more carefully think about my path and pray for direction so that I will always be sure I'm following you. I wish to turn from evil. I know that in your light is where I want to be. Through Jesus, I pray. Amen.

Based on Proverbs 4:23-27:

Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life. Put away from you crooked speech, and put devioustalk far from you. Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you. Ponder the path of your feet; then all your ways will be sure. Do not swerve to the right or to the left; turn your foot away from evil.

  1. I wish it was easier to follow the path God has designed for me. I need to pray for more strength to fight against the distractions..daily..that keep me from Him.
