A Psalm and A Prayer
Psalm 118

Teaching the Truth in Love

Psalm 118

Leader: O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His steadfast love endures forever!

People: Let those who fear the Lord say, “His steadfast love endures forever.”

Leader: Out of my distress I called on the Lord. The Lord answered me and set me in a broad place. With the Lord on my side, I do not fear. What can mortals do to me?

People: The Lord is on my side to help me. I shall look in triumph on those who hate me. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to put confidence in mortals.

Leader:  The stone that the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone. This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.

People: This is the day that the Lord has made! Let us rejoice and be glad in it!

Father God, indeed, this is the day that You have made, a day of rejoicing and rest, and day of celebration and gladness, a day of praise and prayer to You. O God, You are worthy to be praised, and we look forward to that day when every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Fill us now with Your Holy Spirit and hear us as we pray: “Our Father. . .”
