Almighty, infinite Father, my desire is to live a life pleasing to you. I pray your Holy Spirit steers me clear of these things that you hate, seven that are an abomination to you. Search me and remove any haughty ways. Create a shared hatred for lies and for shedding innocent blood. Well up against those who hurt our children, Father, against those with wicked plans, running to evil, twisting the meaning of words to suit their benefit. Bind my heart in unity with yours and root out any sense of discord in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.” (Proverbs 6:16-19 ESV)
