11.08.20 (Based on Psalm 78:1-7)
God, may your people listen to your teaching; may we incline our ears to the words of your mouth.
May we deeply consider your truth as you open your mouth in a parable, as you utter insightful sayings of old – saying we have heard and known, sayings our forefathers have told us.
Lord, we will not hide these truths but will tell the coming generation of our praises of you Lord, and of your strength, and the wonderful works that you have done.
For you, father, established a rule in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which you commanded to be known and made known to the children, that the generation to come might know them, even those not yet born, may they, then, arise and declare them to their children:
God, we pray that they will set their hope in you God and not forget you works, and will keep your truth not repeating our mistakes. For we are a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation that has not always set our heart steadfast, and a generation that is not always faithful to you, O God.
God, may we choose you. May we put away our false gods, and worship only you, may our celebrations and practices be sincere and acceptable to you. God, may our faith be genuine and true.
