Holy Father, I know there is no shadow of falsehood in you. You are truth itself and want me to live in truth. I ask you to hold my hand as I walk through discovering the truth in my own life and thoughts.
I confess I have wanted my false assumptions more than I wanted the truth.
Give me courage and peace to accept the truth because sometimes the truth really hurts. Be with me when I hurt because of the truth. Heal me when I hurt because of the truth. Strengthen me with the understanding that truth is important to you so it needs to be important to me. Remind me of the truth of your love, grace, and forgiveness as the underlying truth of all else.
Teach me your truth, Father.
Set me free.
