Keep me from sinning. Do not let anyone gain control over me. Then I will be blameless, and I will be free from any great offense. May the words from my mouth and the thoughts from my heart be acceptable to you, O Lord, my rock and my defender.
— Psalm 19:13-14 GWT
Lord, please don’t let the enticements of this world or my earthly desires cause me to lose my focus or control. I truly want to be pure in Your sight. Help me to speak with truth, grace, and love and think and focus on things that are acceptable in Your sight. You are the One I look to for a defense, Lord, and if You refuse to be my defender, then I am hopeless. Deliver me from hopelessness and despair and anything that offends You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
