Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
I Tim 3:1-13
Christ Jesus, help me walk blamelessly with you ...
When I walk blamelessly with Christ Jesus, it is not that I walk as a good woman, doing everything right, but rather that I am not constantly complaining and blaming others – or even God – for what is challenging me. When I consider myself to be good I can easily become ‘puffed up with conceit’. Christ calls us to be more forgiving and less self-righteous; more faith-full and less self-conscious; more a follower and less a self-made woman or man. Then I can be so familiar with humility that I will walk blamelessly along life’s journey –and will be able to minister to others in the name and the nature of Jesus. Christ Jesus, help me walk blamelessly with you.
I will study the way that is blameless... I will walk with integrity of heart within my house. (Psalm 101:2)
"I do not pray for success, I ask for faithfulness."
