The commitment of the faithful to your blood covenant is no small thing, Lord. Your coming as Emmanuel, God with us, to live among us and teach us then die to save us stretches my thoughts to places I can’t quite reach, yet approach by faith. I will ponder the way that is blameless. I will walk in integrity of heart. I will know nothing of evil, only to speak your name to make it flee. No one who practices deceit can live in your house. No one who utters falsehood continues before your eyes. Morning by morning you destroy the wicked in the land. You cut off the evildoers. I come to you with committed heart, mind and soul in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good an perfect will. Amen.

“Morning by morning I will destroy all the wicked in the land, cutting off all the evildoers from the city of the LORD.” (Psalm 101:8 ESV)
