Father God, encircle me with your hedge of protection. Keep me far from folly and poor choices. May I feel the thorns of the hedge whenever I get close to leaving the circle of your will, for whoever loves discipline loves knowledge. He who hates reproof is stupid. No one is established by wickedness. Do not allow me to move away from your righteous ways. Your house of righteousness stands forever. Let its shadow cover me as I seek your good pleasure in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“No one is established by wickedness, but the root of the righteous will never be moved.” (Proverbs 12:3 ESV)
