Lord, keep me on the path to righteousness. Continue teaching me and leading me with your Holy Spirit. Don’t allow me to move to the right nor to the left without your will in my step. Surround me with your hedge of protection that I may gain your reward for being righteous and clean in your sight. I ask in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“The Lord dealt with me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands he rewarded me. For I have kept the ways of the Lord, and have not wickedly departed from my God. For tall his rules3 were before me, and his statutes I did not put away from me. I was blameless before him, and I kept myself from my guilt. So the Lord has rewarded me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his sight.” (Psalm 18: 20-24 ESV)
