Lord, may nothing stand between me and You today. Teach me to select only Your path today so that each action brings me one step nearer to You. Please lead me not by feelings but by the Word of God. Keep my heart untainted and unbroken, please. Please shield me from my own thoughtless words, actions, and thoughts.

Lord, please help me never forget what a blessing it is to be able to sit with You in this way. Amen.
