This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.- Joshua 1:8
Holy God we praise your Holy Name and acclaim with the multitude of heavenly beings, that you are the Everlasting Living God. In adoration we chant out, acknowledging the glory that is yours and that surpasses all that exists. We acknowledge that you are King of the Universe, we acknowledge your dominion over all created things and the attributes of Omnipotence, Omniscience and Omnipresence, being yours alone.
Your laws are infallible, your statutes are flawless and your promises unfailing. Your Holy Word is impeccable and your gospel is Truth. Not a word can we conceal or depart from, but observance of them shall be our guide and our paths we will follow according to your Holy Will. The Holy Spirit exhorts us to dwell constantly on your Holy Word, read it, and upon occasion discourse of it, so that our steps may never falter or lead us away from the path you have paved.
Lord, in these present times of calamity, confusion and chaos, help us to seek to meditate more sombrely and diligently, study and discern upon all occasions, what is your Word, and accordingly, your Will, and how we may so perform our duty as to find favor with you and be blessed with your grace. May this govern all our private actions and public ministry. May our faithfulness in following your commands result in peace, prosperity and success in all our undertakings, in Jesus’ Name. Amen
