What God Requires



Psalm 15

A psalm of David.

 1 Who may worship in your sanctuary, Lord?
      Who may enter your presence on your holy hill?
 2 Those who lead blameless lives and do what is right,
      speaking the truth from sincere hearts.
 3 Those who refuse to gossip
      or harm their neighbors
      or speak evil of their friends.
 4 Those who despise flagrant sinners,
      and honor the faithful followers of the Lord,
      and keep their promises even when it hurts.
 5 Those who lend money without charging interest,
      and who cannot be bribed to lie about the innocent.
   Such people will stand firm forever.

Dear Lord,

May I live a life that is blameless and always do what is right. May my mouth speak only your truth, for the edification of others and may my heart be sincere and pure. May I be filled with a righteous anger toward sin while faithfully keeping my promises to you no matter my circumstance. May I be in the position to help others without want in return and may my influence never be purchased, rather pure and just. Having done these things may You, O Lord, find me firmly planted in You that I may worship in thought, word, and deed in Your holy presence.

May my labor not be in vein and may I tend the harvest fields you’ve entrusted to me with love and mercy. By Your grace alone may the legacy handed down by me reflect Your glory, bringing honor to Your name.

In Jesus’ name.
