Psalm 108

Leader:  My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast. I will sing and make melody.

People: Awake, my soul! Awake, O harp and lyre! I will awake the dawn.

Leader: I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples. And I will sing praises to you among the nations.

People: Your steadfast love is higher than the heavens. Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.

Leader:  Be exalted, O God, above the heavens. Let your glory be over all the earth.

People: Give victory with your right hand. Hear our prayers, so those whom you love may be rescued! With God we shall do valiantly. He will tread down our foes.

Heavenly Father, we pray for all who serve You and their nation. We pray for Your protection upon all those in harm’s way. Bless all the families who have lost loved ones in the defense of our country. Show our nation’s leaders the right way to go and the right things to do, that we might always fight on Your side and achieve victory over Your enemies. Help us share the saving grace of Jesus Christ with all people, for You are no respecter of persons and You do not desire that any should perish. In Jesus’ name 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. . .”
