Give us, O Lord, steadfast hearts that cannot be dragged down by false loves; give us courageous hearts that cannot be worn down by trouble; give us righteous hearts that cannot be sidetracked by unholy or unworthy goals. Give to us also, our Lord and God, understanding to know You, wisdom to recognize You, and a faithfulness that will bring us to see You face to face.
[Thomas A. Kempis]
1 Samuel 12:24 ... Only fear the Lord, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you.
Proverbs 4:5 ... Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.
Psalm 57:7 ... My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise. ❤
