Lord, I want to be righteous.
Psa 1:1 (NIV) Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers.

God, help me not to live my life according to the advice of the wicked or worldly. I commit myself to your counsel. Even when the counsel of the world sounds like the perfect answer, I ask for your guidance and power to not yield to it. Help me not to live my life after the patterns and systems of sinners. Let me be an influence on the sinner rather than being influenced by the sinner. Help me not to join in with those who are gossiping, talking bad about others, sharing people’s faults and shortcomings, and enjoying it when people fail or fall.

Psa 1:2 (NIV) But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.

Help me to enjoy the concepts of your Word. Help me to want to know them and live my life by them. Help me to read, study, memorize, and use Your Word for all the decisions of my life. Give me the power to have Your Word in my life in such a way that it becomes the thoughts and guidance of all my days and my nights.

Psa 1:3 (NIV) He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.

Lord, I have to have Your blessings. The streams of Your Holy Spirit are vital to my moment by moment survival. And, they are vital to all I do to minister to others. I and the people around me are counting on the streams of water of Your Spirit to bless, nourish, and empower us. Let the results of Your streams of water be a fully developing Christian life and ministry.
Let all that I am and all that I do bring glory to You. Make it possible for everything I do to prosper for the growth of my life, the meeting of the needs of Your people, and the salvation of the lost. Let people see the fruit of Your Spirit and the growth brought about in my life as a mighty work by Your supply.

Psa 1:4 (NIV) Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away.

Heavenly Father, I pray for the wicked that Your Holy Spirit would convict them of their sins. I ask that they would see the folly of their ways, repent, and turn to You. Help them to see how their wickedness is ruining their lives. Make it possible for them to come to their senses and accept Jesus as the Lord and Savior of their lives. Psa 1:5 (NIV) Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

My God, help these people to get a glimpse of the judgment day. Give them a clear picture of where they are heading. Help us to present the Gospel message to them. When they hear Your message. Give them the ability to understand and respond to it. Let their hearts be transformed before it is too late.

Psa 1:6 (NIV) For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.

Bless the lives and ministries of Your people, oh God. Protect them from the efforts of those used by Satan. Let all the wicked who will not turn to You to be thwarted in all their efforts to circumvent the preaching of the Gospel and the spread of its message. Block the efforts of the wicked and prosper the efforts of Your people.

I ask all of this in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
