You were there at the beginning, along with the Father, a workman ever rejoicing as the world was framed.
You are ever there, ready to guard our lips when words are many, and yet Your speech is noble when the time is right.
We would set you as a necklace adorned with gems around our necks, and clothe our frame with truth and beauty. Keep us from those things that are rash, and help us weigh our choices right.
May your discernment be ever present within, like a sword that divides half-truths from lies. You enable long life to those who seek You, and security is ever found within Your walls.
You are far more to be desired than the finest gold or silver, for these are as nothing compared to you.
There is security and integrity to be found with You, and deliverance comes to those who seek You. Your paths are ever straight and never crooked, they waver not nor wander away.
May we never forget Your Teaching nor ever forsake Your Warning. Favor and long life will then be found as we follow Your Ways.
Then as we lean not unto our own understanding, may we trust that higher path that leads ahead.

Stephen Hanson of In His Truth Ministries came to the LORD is a special way in 1975 and has prophesied regularly since. In these end-time birthing pangs we are reminded that judgment must first begin with the household of God. Will we be prepared and ready?
