give me the spiritual courage to be honest
in all things: honest with my fellow mortals,
honest with myself, and honest to You, God.
me not be a deceiver nor a self-deceiver.
Lead me to take time out for contemplation
and for honest assessments of my moral life,
and the state of my immortal soul.
me avoid lying, remembering always that You are
the Way and the Truth, and that if I do not respect
the truth, I am not respecting You.
this I pray in hoping trust,
2012 Donn B. Murphy
