I can’t build a life on wickedness. I’ll make righteousness my unshakable foundation. Give me insights worth hearing. Shield 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 work out. Don’t let me think I’m too smart to listen to others’ advice. Don’t let me be so sensitive that I react to every insult.
I won’t stop following your ways. Help me bounce back from every hurt I endure. Free me from the weight of my anxieties. Lift me up with an encouraging word.
Show me when I’m only looking out for myself. I want to lead people to real life.
