Prayer is a powerful force for good. At Guideposts, we believe in the strength of prayer to bring comfort, hope, and healing. Your generous donation today will help us continue to share the power of prayer with those in need. Together, through prayer and support, we can make a difference.

Here’s a truth test and a few suggestions to go with your answers.

1. Are you truthful with God?
Is your relationship with God phony? Do you put on a mask when you pray or go to church? If so, take some time to tell God the truth about your fear, your hates, even your doubts. Hold nothing back.

2. Are you truthful with yourself?
Do you pretend that status symbols mean little to you when they mean a lot? Do material things get in the way of your having a close relationship to God and others? Review your day and prepare an honest appraisal of your struggle to be truthful. Look into a Bible concordance under the word truth. List the passages that have particular meaning for you.

3. Are you truthful with the world?
Starting today, see if you can adhere strictly to truth in your job and in community activities. A surprising number of dividends may result. Chief among them should be strengthened relationships. But the big dividend is an inner peace when we—with God’s help—rid our lives of hypocrisy and deceit. Truth that will set us free.
