Wisdom of the Lord

April 11, 2021

Today’s prayer is adapted from Psalm 15.

Lord, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill?

He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart

and has no slander on his tongue, who does his neighbor no wrong and casts no slur on his fellowman,

who despises a vile man but honors those who fear the Lord, who keeps his word even when it hurts,

he does not take unfair advantage of those in need, and does not accept a bribe against the innocent.

He who does these things will never be shaken.

Lord help us to find hope in your word, and to choose leaders who follow your path of humility, wisdom and peace.

Amen
