Lord, keep my steps on the path of your righteousness. Don’t allow me to step to the right nor to the left if that step takes me out of your will. Grant me discernment and understanding. Give me boldness to stand firm on your precepts. I ask in your name, Jesus, by your authority, and according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“Doing wrong is like a joke to a fool, but wisdom is pleasure to a man of understanding. Folly is a joy to him who lacks sense, but a man of understanding walks straight ahead.” (Proverbs 10: 23, Proverbs 15: 21 ESV)
