Psalm 119:161-163 “Rulers persecute me without cause, but my heart trembles at your word. I rejoice in your promise like one who finds great spoil. I hate and detest falsehood but I love your law.”
Leader, I bless you with your God-gifts being recognised by your peers. I bless you with the weight of God’s word resting on you, both to encourage and to warn. I bless you with the shalom peace of God filling your days – the peace that devours the authority that establishes chaos. I bless you with your ways being known to God; with, as you are attentive to God’s principles, Him showing Himself strong on your behalf.
Psalm 119:164-168 “Seven times a day I praise you for your righteous laws. Great peace have those who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble. I wait for your salvation, Lord, and I follow your commands. I obey your statutes, for I love them greatly. I obey your precepts and your statutes, for all my ways are known to you.”
