Focus Scripture: Psalm 25:5 (NRSV) Lead me in your truth, and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all day long.
God of Mercy, God of Love, we need you to help us to see clearly today. We need you to help us to stay anchored in your holy word so that we will know the truth from a lie. We need you to teach us so we can discern right from wrong. We pray that you will deliver us from our pettiness, greed, selfishness, jealousy, and hypocrisy. We pray that you will deliver us from all evil. Forgive us of our sins. You are the God of our salvation, and we place our faith and hope in you. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
