Prayers for Integrity
What’s integrity? I can hear it described, and it just doesn’t have the impact I get when I can see it in action. What’s integrity, you ask? Integrity is who you are when no one is watching. Integrity is what you do when the spotlight is turned off and people go home. Standing up and being counted.
Having a teachable spirit is so important. A nurturing approach works well, too!
Dear Lord, help me to develop integrity—teachableness—nurture and caring. I know that I fall short, God. Thank You for the ability to learn from others, and to listen to wisdom. I direct this prayer to You as we consider speaking words that edify and not tear down; acting to please You above all things; and living a life that is honest, open, and willing to be counted. Standing up for Godly choices. Having integrity. Lord, in Your mercy, hear all of our prayers.
