Prayer for today

Heavenly Father, teach me how to be real when I call upon you. Don't allow my heart to say words just because they sound good, thinking they will make me look good. Let the words of my mouth and the meditations that come from my heart be approved by you, because nothing else matters. I want to do things that are pleasing in thy sight. Amen.
