Prayer:

"Lord, help me to cherish truth- knowing that you are the author of all that is beautiful, right, lovely, and true. May truth reign in my heart and actions, no matter what I encounter today- lies, mockery, confusion, or betrayal. Guard my mind with your truth, dispel all the lies of shame, anger, and uncertainty in the faithfulness of your love. Your truth gives me clarity and peace. Lord, you created truth. You are truth. Help me to know you more through learning, loving, and living truth. I give you glory when I dwell in your truth. Amen."

"Lord, let your truth reign – in my heart, mind, and actions."

Practice:

Determine what occasions regularly lead you to deceit. What do you tend to hide? What do you believe your lies are accomplishing for you? Confess your deceit to God. Reach out to another believer and confess, bring to light what you have been hiding. Plan to speak the truth this week.
