“A Prayer For Integrity”

April 26, 2018

Praying man Father, I consider the extremely difficult choice Job made not to sin by charging You with wrongdoing. I consider Joseph who withstood tremendous temptation by resisting the seduction of Potiphar’s wife. And I consider Daniel who refused to stop his custom of praying to his Father in heaven though he knew it would land him in the lions’ den. These three, among many other godly brothers and sisters, chose to do the right thing knowing that doing so would cause them great suffering or terrible injustice. The ultimate example is Jesus, Your Son, who died in our stead though He was wholly innocent of sin. Help us not to look for that which is easy, quick, or that which will avoid consequence. May we be willing to deal with the consequence of obedience to You; whether it works out for our good in the short term or not. May our greatest concern be for that which works for our good internally and eternally.  In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
