Prayer for Integrity
"It's not what you know, it's who you know..."
There is only one case where that be something to be proud of:
"It's not what you know, it's Who you know!"
Have you noticed these days that when someone pulls off a famous or sensational crime, that's how it is viewed: sensational! The criminals are praised for their skill and expertise!
What's wrong with us?
"Oh grant, Lord, that integrity
would be our epitaph.
'Thou shalt not bear false witness...' this, Lord,
being yet our staff.
Until the fading of the night
that shan't be anymore,
'mongst them considered 'just' may we
remain of good rapport.
'As honest as the day is long,'
I heard it said of one.
May it, too, be said of me
being, Lord, Your son!
May others look at us, oh God,
and not find any fault,
but, upon thought or sight of us,
may they, Your Name, exalt!"
Join me in this prayer, won't you?
In a time and place that regards criminals as heroes, it is good and right to stand out.
