Almighty Loving Father, implant your words onto my heart. Open my ears to hear your warnings. Help me keep discretion and guard knowledge that my lips shun lies. Forbidden actions and words drip sweeter than honey and run smoother than fine oil, but their consequence is wormwood and death. Keep me on the path to abundant life in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“Her feet go down to death; her steps follow the path to Sheol; she does not ponder the path of life; her ways wander, and she does not know it.” (Proverbs 5:5-6 ESV)
