Holy God, as we lean not on our own understanding, but trust in the saving grace and knowledge of you, you bless us. As we turn away from evil and toward a loving Savior, you bless us. As we love our neighbor, including our enemies, you bless us. As we speak truth in love and not criticism or sarcasm, you bless us. As we study your Word to know you more, you bless us. I praise you for your promises to bless us in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.” (Psalm 1:1-2 ESV)
