“O house of Levi, bless the Lord; you who revere the Lord, bless the
Lord.  Blessed be the Lord from Zion, Who
dwells in Jerusalem.  Praise the
Lord!”  (Psalm 135:20-21)

The Lord raises up and appoints
those who are the leaders of the people. 
He calls to them to revere the Lord and be a blessing in His name among
the people.  The Lord calls from Zion, the
holy place He has prepared for those who are His.  Come into the Lord’s presence and praise Him
all you people.  Come you, who are in
positions of leadership, and praise Him.

Lord, grant that I would see that no matter what I do or where I am, I
am still your servant.  Grant me a clean
and righteous heart that would forever abide in Your presence and be guided by
your goodness and mercy.  Lead me, O Lord,
in the way You would have me go now and always. 
Help me to see in You the hope of glory and the goodness to which You
are calling me.  Draw me to Zion.

Lord Jesus, You who leads the way, lead me this day.  Guide me according to the way You have established that I would prepare to dwell in the house You are preparing forever.  Guide me, Lord, this day in the leadership You have given me that I would praise You.  Help me not wander away, but steadfastly prepare to live in the life eternal.  Amen.
