Almighty and awesome God, I give thanks to you with my whole heart in the company of the upright, in the congregation. Those who delight in your great works study them. Your deeds are full of majesty and splendor; your righteousness endures. Father, you are gracious and merciful. You remember your covenant forever and provide food for those who fear you. You show your power in giving inheritance of the nations to your people. The works of your hands are faithful and just. Your precepts are trustworthy and established with no end. You redeem your people. Your name is holy and awesome; and the fear of it is the beginning of wisdom. My praise endures in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding.” (Psalm 111:10 ESV)
