Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. (John 17:17 NKJV)
Dear Jesus, in John 17, You prayed for Your disciples and the believers who would follow You — including us. And in Your prayer, You asked that we be made holy by God’s truth — Your Word is truth. And we also know that means You. John 1:1 which says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” So Lord, please let Your Word wash over us and fill us. Help us to hide Your Word in our hearts as David did in Psalm 119:11. Let everything we say or do pass through the filter of what God says is right and good. Let us be more concerned about what You say than we are about the world says. And when we have to choose to believe You or what the world tells us, please encourage us and equip us to choose You. In Your Holy Name, I pray, Amen.
