My heavenly Father, your Word is treasure and life for me. I store up your commandments and follow your precepts that I may know life abundantly. They are the apple of my eye, and I seek to bind them on my fingertips and share them abroad. I call your wisdom my sister and insight an intimate friend. They are constancy and truth to my heart. They are my fortress and shield from temptation. Encircle me with their hedge of protection, and let me feel the thorns of discipline when I step outside the circle of your will. Maintain sovereignty over my going out and coming in in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“My son, keep my words and treasure up my commandments with you; keep my commandments and live; keep my teaching as the apple of your eye;” (Proverbs 7:1-2 ESV)
