O Lord, rescue me from evil people. Protect me from those who are violent, those who plot evil in their hearts and stir up trouble all day long.
Life in Christ
Prepare the way for the Lord’s coming! Clear the road for him!
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
Your promises are backed by all the honor of your name. As soon as I pray, you answer me; you encourage me by giving me strength.
How can we sing the songs of the Lord while in a pagan land?
Give thanks to the God of heaven. His faithful love endures forever.
Your name, O Lord, endures forever; your fame, O Lord, is known to every generation. For the Lord will give justice to his people and have compassion on his servants.
May the Lord, who made heaven and earth, bless you from Jerusalem.
