  • Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.” (Psalm 1)
  • Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.” (Psalm 31:24)
  • Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, He doth go with thee; He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.” (Deuteronomy 31:6)

Richard Wuehler’s closing prayer:

“Thank you, Lord, for your precious promises and your encouragement. You give us hope and a future. Your hope includes your Word and history that shows we have hope and a future in you, and one hundred years from now, two hundred years from now; we can look back and say, ‘Wow, thank You, Lord, that we followed You.’ That’s our goal, on the other side that we can look back with our kids. Thank you, Lord. Amen.”
