Adapted from Psalm 89:20-30; 32-37
“I have found [your name here] my servant;
with my holy oil have I anointed you.
My hand will hold you fast
and my arm will make you strong.
No enemy shall deceive you,
nor any wicked person, thing, idea, or place bring you down.
I will crush your sins and temptations before you,
and strike down those inner confusions and falsehoods
that tempt you to hate yourself.
My faithfulness and love shall be with you,
and you shall be victorious through my Name.
I shall make your dominion extend
from your heart to your mind to your actions.
You will say to me, ‘You are my Father/Mother/Maker/Friend [insert your favorite term],
my God, and the rock of my salvation.’
I will give you my Firstborn
Who is higher than the kings of the earth.
I will keep my love for you forever,
and my covenant will stand firm for you.
I will establish your eternal life forever
and your security in me as the days of heaven.”
…I will not take my love from you,
nor let my faithfulness prove false.
I will not break my covenant,
nor change what has gone out of my lips.
Once for all I have sworn by my holiness:
‘I will not lie to [your name].
Your life and faith shall endure forever
and your peace as the sun before me;
It shall stand fast forevermore like the moon,
the abiding witness in the sky.’ ”
