Also see scriptures: "LOVING THE TRUTH"
Father, this moment I am choosing the way of truth.  I want to set my heart on Your laws.  (Ps. 119:30)  Help me to choose the way of truth the rest of my days. Show me Your ways, O Lord, teach me Your paths;  guide me in Your truth and teach me, for You are God my Savior, and my hope is in You all day long. Ps 25:4-5

Test me O Lord, and try me, examine my heart and my mind; for Your love is ever before me, and I desire to walk continually in Your truth. Ps 26:2-3  Do not withhold Your mercy from me, O Lord; may Your love and Your truth always protect me. Ps. 40:11

Father please help me learn how much Your truth protects me.  Without it, I am vulnerable to the enemy and to my own flesh nature.  Glorious God, in Your majesty ride forth victoriously in behalf of truth, humility, and righteousness; let Your right hand display awesome deeds.  Ps 45:4  

I don't need to be afraid of truth.  It is the key You will use to take me forth into victory.  God, surely You desire truth in my inner parts; You teach me wisdom in the inmost place Ps. 51:6

Please expose to me the deeply embedded lies I've believed and replace them with permanently engraved truth !  Teach me Your ways, O Lord, and I will walk in Your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear Your name.  Ps 86:11

Father, You have said in Your Word, " Whosoever invokes a blessing in the land will do so by the God of truth; he who takes an oath in the land will swear by the God of truth.  For the past troubles will be forgotten and hidden from my eyes." 
Isaiah  65:16  

Lord I have plenty of past troubles.  They seem to continue to be right before my eyes.  Please, God of truth, invoke a blessing over MY life and release me from my past ! Lord God, have mercy on me.  Help me not to be unresponsive to Your correction.  You only chastise in love in order to bring me back to the place of You, Lord God.  Help me not hide behind lies.  When You look for truth, I pray You will find truth in me !  Merciful God, according to Your word, everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.  But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.   {John 3:20-21} 

O God, help me to not be afraid to let YOU shine Your light on my darkness.  Please cause Your light to permeate, expose, and treat any darkness or deception in me so that I can live freely in Your  light !  Christ Jesus, my Savior and Lord, YOU are my Way, my Truth, my Life. You are my only means of going to the Father ( John 14:6)  Thank You, Jesus, for the access You afforded me when You laid down Your life in my place. Lord sanctify me by the truth; Your Word is truth. 
(John 17:17)

Please help me to embrace fully what this verse is saying, Lord.  I can be saved by You, but if I don't allow You to teach me and mature me through  Your Word, I will never fulfill what You sanctified or set me apart in this earthly existence to do.  Father, You sent Your Holy Spirit to be a Counselor to me.  He came straight from You to me and other believers.  HE is the Spirit of Truth who goes out from the Father and HE faithfully testifies truth to me concerning Your Son, Jesus.  ( John 15:26)

Your Holy Spirit, the Spirit of truth, will guide me into all truth.  He will not speak on His own;  He will speak only what He hears from YOU.  (John 16:13)  As the Holy Spirit within me searches and pinpoints areas of deception in my life, give me sound discernment to understand as He guides me into all truth.  Thank You Lord.


Father, Your old temple was sanctified by Your Glory, so I ask You to sanctify me with Your glory, as we are the temples of the Holy Spirit. Come Holy Spirit and lead me in the way everlasting....Pour out Your glory Lord....come and change me into the person You want me to be and help me to do all You want me to do.   Break any areas of fear of intimacy in my life that I may enjoy close fellowship with You and not hide from Your Spirit.  Heal all the woundedness in my life, that would block my ability to walk whole in this world.  Reveal to me any areas of healing I still need that I may fulfill the call You have on my life.
In Jesus name,   Amen !
