A Psalm and A Prayer
Psalm 90

Teaching the Truth in Love

Psalm 90

Leader:  Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations.Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

People: A thousand years in your sight are like yesterday when it is past, or like a watch in the night. The days of our life are seventy years, or perhaps eighty, if we are strong.

Leader: Teach us to count our days, so we may gain a wise heart.

People: Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, so we may rejoice and be glad all our days.

Leader: Let your work be manifest to your servants, and your glorious power to their children.

People: Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and prosper for us the work of our hands
— O prosper the work of our hands!

Heavenly Father, as we begin a New Year, we rededicate our lives to serving You and our blessed Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Increase our devotion for You and Your work in this place. Fill us with Your Holy Spirit so we can bear fruit and bless others. Prune us so we can bear even more and better fruit. Fill us and prune us in the coming year, and even now as we pray in Jesus’ name: “Our Father. . .”
