Faithful God, I confess that many times I lack common sense, or I fail to exercise it. I often lack knowledge of what to do, or I know but don’t do it. In these times, Lord, please hold my right hand. Keep me from stumbling or straying into danger. Be to me a faithful Father, guiding me with your counsel. Whom have I in heaven but you? And on earth, I desire only you. You are the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Amen.
