Dear Lord, You have told us that the man that does not walk in the ways of the world and refuses to be influenced by the trinkets that this world offers, but who puts their trust in You, is blessed indeed.
You also told us that the one who delights in You and meditates on Your Word is like a fruitful tree that is planted by the rivers of water.
Bless me Lord, I pray, with love in times of hatred, goodness in times of hostility, peace in times of strife, hope in the midst of despair, faith in the times of testings and joy in the times of pain. For my hope is in You alone.
Bless me Lord, I pray, with those blessings that only come from You.
Loving Father, it is my desire that I too walk in Your ways and keep from foolish compromise with the world system. Keep my heart set on the Lord Jesus so that my thoughts are not influenced by the mindset of this current age. May I be like the man planted by Your many rivers of grace and love, joy and peace. May Your mercy and compassion flow through me to those around me, in the place where you have planted me. In Jesus' name, AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for Psalm 1:1
