Psalm 16a

Leader: Protect us, O God, for in you we take refuge. You are our Lord. We have no good apart from you.

People: As for the holy ones in our land, they are the noble, in whom is all our delight.

Leader: Those who choose another god multiply their sorrows. We will not take their names upon our lips.

People: The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; I have a goodly heritage.

Heavenly Father, because You have revealed Yourself truly to us in the Bible, we know that we can come to You for protection and refuge. We do look with favor, even as You do, upon those who strive to live holy in Your name. We pray that You would defend them and all who seek to live wholly for You, even at the risk of their lives or livelihood. Even as those who worship false gods come to sorrow, we pray that You would keep us from depending upon the things of this world instead of trusting completely in You. Bless this hour of worship as we begin by praying the prayer that Jesus taught us: “Our Father. . .”
