Prayer #27. His Honesty

Father, we know You do not lie, but hate all things deceitful. No one who practices deceit will dwell in Your house; no one who speaks falsely will stand before You. (Ps.101:7) I pray You will far remove from my husband any lying are deceiving way.
Father, make my husband a man who hates lies as much as You do. It is one of the seven abominations and will not go unpunished. (Pr.6:16) Give my husband the wisdom to always speak honestly and sincerely. May he keep his oath even when it hurts. (Ps.15:4) Such a man will gain honor and respect. Teach him to let his 'Yes' be 'Yes' and his 'No' be 'No'. (Matt.5:37)
I pray also, he would be a man honest in all his dealings. You, oh Lord, detest differing weights and dishonest scales. (Pr.20:23) Plant my husband in uprightness, so that no one can find fault in his dealings.
Father, words and deeds are done, reflecting the condition of a mans heart. May the intentions of my husbands heart not be ones of deceit or schemes of ill gain. Rather, I pray that the words of his mouth and the meditation of his heart would be pleasing in Your sight. (Ps.19:14) May he always keep growing in You, striving do no wrong and speak no lies or deceit from his mouth. (Zeph.3:13) In Jesus' name. Amen

"A malicious man disguises himself
with his lips, but in his heart
he harbors deceit.
Though his speech is charming,
do not believe him,
for seven abominations fill his heart.
His malice may be concealed by deception,
but his wickedness will be exposed
in the assembly.
A lying tongue hates those it hurts,
and a flattering mouth works ruin."
~Proverbs 26:24-26,28~
