Lord Make Our Paths Straight and True

In Proverbs, we are told how important it is for us to trust in the Lord completely and to follow His direction for it shall be true and just.
“(5) Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
(6) In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.”
(Proverbs 3:5-6, ESV)
We must put our complete trust and faith in Jesus Christ as we walk with Him seeking greater understanding, for without his guidance, we will wander from the path of righteousness and give into temptation and sin. Adam tried to rely on himself and of his own judgement in the garden, and in absence of divine direction, gave into temptation and eating of the forbidden fruit.
Lord we pray for Your direction and guidance as we walk with You in our life’s journey and as we seek greater understanding of Your word. We know that Your direction will be true and just; our paths will be straight.
In Jesus’s name we pray,
