Psalm 119 e

Leader: Teach me, O LORD, the way of your statutes, and I will observe it to the end.

People: Give me understanding, that I may keep your law and observe it with my whole heart.

Leader: Lead me in the path of your commandments, for I delight in it.

People: Turn my heart to your decrees, and not to selfish gain.

Leader: Turn my eyes from looking at vanities; give me life in your ways.

People: Confirm to your servant your promise, which is for those who fear you, for your ordinances are good. See, I have longed for your precepts; in your righteousness give me life.

Heavenly Father, as we begin a New Year, we recommit ourselves to You, to Your Son, to observing Your word, and to trusting in the Holy Spirit, Who will counsel and empower us daily. Give us a greater love for Your word written, so we will spend more time in the study of the Scriptures, time that You and Your word deserve. As we pray for others to come to know the Way of Salvation, help us serve You better as faithful witnesses for Jesus Christ, Who gave His life for us and in whose Name we pray. Amen.

Heavenly Father, as we begin a new week, we recommit ourselves to You, to Your only begotten Son, to observing Your word, and to trusting in the Holy Spirit, Who will counsel and empower us daily. Give us a greater love for Your word written, so we will spend more time in the study of the Scriptures, time that You and Your word deserve. As we pray for others to come to know Your Son, the only Way of Salvation, help us serve You better as faithful witnesses of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Who gave His life to save us from sin and taught us to pray, “Our Father . . . .”

Psalm 100

Leader: Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.

People: Worship the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!

Leader: Know that the Lord is God.

People: It is he that made us, and we are his. We are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Leader: Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise. Give thanks to him, bless his name.

People: For the Lord is good. His steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.

Father in heaven, on this Resurrection Sunday, we praise You for giving us the assurance of life after death by the resurrection of Your Son, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, from the dead. We also praise Jesus today. Because of His faithful obedience to You, an obedience that perfectly fulfilled Your law, He became worthy to die in our place. Lord Jesus, we thank You for dying on the cross so our sins could be justly forgiven. Father, we thank You for our faith in You and in Jesus; faith that You have inspired within our hearts by Your grace. Now, fill us once again with Your Holy Spirit, that we might live in a worthy manner and demonstrate Your love to others; fill us even as we pray: “Our Father. . .”
