I can’t build a life on evil. I’ll make righteousness my firm foundation. Give me wisdom worth hearing. Protect others from my twisted moments.
Teach me to work hard at the jobs you provide for me. Give me sense to know when my dreams won’t come true. Don’t let me think I’m too wise to listen to others’ advice. Don’t let me be so tender that I react to every insult.
I won’t stop following your path. Help me bounce back from all the pain I endure. Free me from the weight of my worries. Lift me up with an encouraging word.
Show me when I’m only being selfish. I want to lead other people to real life.
