We all want that last part...

What  a scary  prayer!
If you think an IRS audit has fear-potential, consider this:

Search me, God, and know my heart; 
test me and know my anxious thoughts. 
See if there is any offensive way in me, 
and lead me in the way everlasting.
Psalm 139:23-24 -  NIV

We all want that last part: lead me in...

But who wants the all-knowing God to have free access to "their business"?

As if He doesn't already... 

His way everlasting excludes  anxious thoughts & offensive ways.

To want His way is to abandon ours.
It is to let Him test, know, confront, transform. 

Scary?  Not compared to trying to exclude, or evade Him. 

What a safe prayer!
