L: You, O Lord, are the Most High over all the earth; you are exalted far above all gods.. P: Let those who love the Lord hate evil, for he guards the lives of his faithful one and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
L: Light is shed upon the righteous and joy on the upright in heart.

Time for Silent Personal Prayer and Reflection
(Unison) Heavenly Father, we so want to be right in Your eyes. Yet Your Holy Word makes it clear to us that our righteousness does not come from us, or from any attempts to keep the Law. In fact, we find great relief when we learn that we do not have to perform for You to earn Your love. All You require for us is to place our faith in Your precious son., our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Nevertheless, we do get distracted at times, and find ourselves attempting to secure Your love by our own efforts. Have mercy upon us Lord. Forgive us, O God, when we lapse back into our worldly mindset of performance. Forgive us for when we lose sight of the simple goal of loving Christ with all of our hearts. We pray this in His holy name. Amen
