Psalm 1

Keep me from the ideas and paths of the wicked: ‘Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers.’

Enable me to think about the Bible: ‘but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.’

Grant that I would provide spiritual shelter and food for others: ‘He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.’

Help me to think about the Day of Judgement: ‘The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.’
