Gracious God, You are the source of all godly counsel and You always direct us to what is best for us. Develop in me a sensitivity for Your Voice. Teach me to be still and quietly listen. Do not allow the noise of wrong influences and ungodly advice muddle my thoughts and distract me from listening to the right things. Help me focus my hearing on helpful words and advice. Help me stay strong against discouraging and unproductive remarks. Tune my ear to words that provide guidance and direction towards a fruitful life. Amen.
