"God who sees the hearts of men and keeps watch on the wicked and the good! I give you praise for the grace that you give in allowing me to come before you. I give you thanks, for you detest the ways and idolatry of the wicked and delight in the worship of the honest.

God, you who teach the importance of humility and control over the heart! I realize that the tongue that brings healing is a tree of life, that the lips of the wise spread knowledge, and that a happy heart makes the face cheerful (Prov 15:1-15). I confess that I have not been able to control my heart and live with humility; I also confess that I have spoken words that are excessive and evil.

Help me to live with humility and faithfulness, and to continually meditate on your word and wisdom. May I live in the fear of the Lord in any situation, properly worshipping you, even with my words and actions. Would you help me to lead a life of true delight in serving the Lord of wisdom—may that joy be manifested through my spirit that shines and my cheerful face. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen."
