Day Eleven: Following Truth, Rejecting Lies

I have no greater joy than to hear
that my children walk in the truth.
- III John 1:4
Lord, I pray that You will fill David and Elizabeth with Your Spirit of truth. Give them hearts that love truth and follow after it, rejecting all lies as a manifestation of the enemy. Flush out anything in them that would entertain a lying spirit and cleanse them from any death that has crept in as a result of lies they may have spoken or thought. Help them to understand that every lie gives the devil a piece of their heart, and into the hole that's left comes confusion, death, and separation from Your presence. Deliver them from any lying spirit. I pray that they not be blinded or deceived, but always be able to clearly understand Your truth.
I pray that David and Elizabeth will never be able to get away with lying - that all lies will come into light and be exposed. If they lie, may they be so miserable that confession and its consequences will seem like relief. Help me to teach them what it means to lie, and effectively discipline them when they test that principle. Your Word says that "when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth" (John 16:13). I pray that Your Spirit of truth will guide them into all truth. May they never be a person who gives place to lies, but rather a person of integrity who follows hard after the Spirit of truth.*
May their Dad and I always be examples of truth to them. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord,
but those who deal truthfully
are His delight.
- Proverbs 12:22
If you love Me, keep My commandments.
And I will pray to the Father,
and He will give you another Helper,
that He may abide with you forever -
the Spirit of truth,
whom the world cannot receive,
because it neither sees Him nor knows Him;
but you know Him,
for He dwells with you and will be in you.
- John 14:15-17
