Father God, turn my attention to you. I want to open my ears to hear and my eyes to see your words. I desire to hold them in my heart. They are life and healing to my flesh. Help me to protect my heart with vigilance, to turn from crooked speech and devious talk. Let my eyes look directly forward toward Jesus, turning neither to the right nor to the left. Make straight the path of my feet as I walk this journey in the land of the living. Turn my feet away from evil and make my ways sure in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“Ponder the path of your feet; then all your ways will be sure.” (Proverbs 4:26 ESV)
