Lord, your presence is evident in the House of Joy. I hear You whisper your secret counsel in my prayer time. I feel the warmth of your loving touch, and the barb of your rebuke at my going outside your will. Keep me within that circle of your confidence, Lord. Grant me your secret counsel in your name above all names, Jesus, according to the goof and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“Do not envy a man of violence and do not choose any of his ways, for the devious person is an abomination to the Lord, but the upright are in his confidence. The Lord’s curse is on the house of the wicked, but he blesses the dwelling of the righteous.” (Proverbs 3: 31-33 ESV)
