Psalm 102

Leader:  Hear my prayer, O Lord. Incline your ear to me. Answer me speedily in the day when I call.

People: All day long my enemies taunt me. Those who deride me use my name for a curse.

Leader: But you, O Lord, are enthroned forever. Your name endures to all generations.

People: You will rise up and have compassion on Zion, for it is time to favor it; the appointed time has come.

Leader: The Lord will build up Zion. He will appear in his glory. He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.

People: Let this be recorded for a generation to come, so that a people yet unborn may praise the Lord.

Leader: Long ago you laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you endure.

People: The children of your servants shall live secure. Their offspring shall be established in your presence.

Lord Jesus, in these days of uncertainty and trouble, we ask You for guidance, strength, and wisdom. We look forward to Your coming again to make all things right, according to Your precious promises. Come now, Lord Jesus. Fill us with Your Spirit. Give us insight to prepare for the future, even as we 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. . .”
