I Will Walk in Your Ways Father



Lord, I will not be afraid of sudden fear, nor of the destruction of the wicked when it comes. You bring me peace. You're my protector, my security and confidence.  You are always at my side helping me walk in Your ways. Your word keeps me in the light on the right path.

I will not keep from doing good to those who deserve it when it's in my power to help them. You have given me love, I can give love. You have given me forgiveness, I can forgive. You have given mercy, compassion, kindness and patience; therefore, I too, can give these. I will not put off until tomorrow what I can do today for others, for tomorrow may never come. 
 
I don’t plan harm against my neighbor who lives peaceably besides me. This is not Your will. I will not accuse anyone for no reason when they have not treated me wrong. Strife is not in my heart. I do not envy a violent person, nor desire any of his ways. I choose Your peaceful ways Lord because I know You detest wicked people, but are a friend to the upright. You curse the house of the evil, but bless the home of the righteous. You scorn the arrogant scoffers and oppose the proud, but You give grace and favor to the humble and afflicted.

The ones who listen to Your words will inherit honor and glory, You bring divine favor to the wise. They shine like the brightness of heaven but fools receive disgrace.

Lord, I hunger for Your wisdom, reveal Your heart to me. Let me live in Your presence God and rest in Your goodness. Hold my hand tightly as we walk. Lead me, I'm Yours. Jesus,You are my life.  

Amen

This prayer is based on Proverbs 3:25-35
