May I walk in the steps of Jesus, who often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Mark 1:35; Luke 5:16)

Take a moment to offer this day to the Lord, and ask Him for the grace to grow in your knowledge and love for Him.

I will put away perversity from my mouth and keep corrupt talk far from my lips. (Proverbs 4:24)

Each of us must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to their neighbor, for we are members of one another. (Ephesians 4:25)

Lord, I thank You for Your Son Jesus and for His earthly ministry. I thank You for being worthy of my complete trust, and I ask that my speech would not be corrupt but truthful.
