Father, please don’t let me be like the ungodly who are like the chaff that the wind blows away and who shall not stand in the judgment or in the congregation of the righteous.
Instead, help me, Lord, to be one of those whom you bless for not walking in the counsel of the wicked or ungodly, or standing in the path of sinners, or sitting in the seat of the scornful.
O God, I do delight in Your law. Help me to meditate upon it day and night. Make me to be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that brings forth fruit in its season and whose leaf shall not wither. Let whatever I do prosper for Your glory.
Thank you, God, for clothing me with the righteousness of Christ so that I shall not perish. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
(Psalm 1, WEB)
