Prayer – Now Choose Life

 

walking

O Lord our God,

You set before us choice this day,
You set before us life and death,
You set before us death and life,
And bid us choose life.

Write your words upon our hearts,
bind your laws upon our hands,
fix your statutes on our heads.
That our feet may walk your way,

O Lord our God
