Psalm 1

Leader: Happy are those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or take the path that sinners tread, or sit in the seat of scoffers; but their delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law they meditate day and night.

People: They are like trees planted by streams of water, which yield their fruit in its season, and their leaves do not wither. In all that they do, they prosper.

Leader: The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away.

People: Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous; for the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.

O Lord, we delight in You and rejoice in Your presence with us this day as we worship You. We take delight in Your written word, and the ability Your indwelling Holy Spirit gives us to obey Your Law and follow Jesus. We thank You for helping us keep our hearts and minds focused on loving and serving You each day, because indeed You are worthy to be praised and served each moment. Help us to pray with pure hearts and holy intention as our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ taught us to pray, “Our Father. . .”
