1 ADORATION I offer, Yahweh, 2 to you, my God.
BUT in my trust in you do not put me to shame, let not my enemies gloat over me.
3 CALLING to you, none shall ever be put to shame, but shame is theirs who groundlessly break faith.
4 DIRECT me in your ways, Yahweh, and teach me your paths.
5 ENCOURAGE me to walk in your truth and teach me since you are the God who saves me.
FOR my hope is in you all day long— 7c such is your generosity, Yahweh.
6 GOODNESS and faithful love have been yours for ever, Yahweh, do not forget them.
7 HOLD not my youthful sins against me, but remember me as your faithful love dictates.
8 INTEGRITY and generosity are marks of Yahweh for he brings sinners back to the path.
9 JUDICIOUSLY he guides the humble, instructing the poor in his way.
10 KINDNESS unfailing and constancy mark all Yahweh’s paths, for those who keep his covenant and his decrees.

G If you have a Journeying to Jerusalem prayer path or labyrinth, today add first aid items and perhaps the words "Good Samaritan" to a spot near the beginning of the path. The items might be a roll of gauze bandage or a band-aid box. It might be wise to glue or tape them in place so they will be secure for as long as needed. Today make a point of explaining what they are and suggesting that as worshipers pass them while walking the path, they might pause and retell the story to themselves or think about people who need their neighborly help. As the weeks go on and worshipers learn how the prayer path works, it will not be necessary to do this in worship each week.
