Psalm 119 b

Leader: With my whole heart I seek you; do not let me stray from your commandments.

People: I treasure your word in my heart, so that I may not sin against you.

Leader: Blessed are you, O LORD; teach me your statutes.

People: With my lips I declare all the ordinances of your mouth.

Leader: I delight in the way of your decrees as much as in all riches.

People: I will meditate on your precepts, and fix my eyes on your ways. I will delight in your statutes; I will not forget your word.

Heavenly Father, especially during this Advent and Christmas season, with all our heart we seek a deeper and more personal relationship with You. When tempted, help us remember Your commandments. When temptations bear heavily upon us, by Your Spirit give us the power to see and follow the way of escape You have prepared for us. As we read and study the Scriptures, please implant Your truth in our hearts and minds so we will choose the right ways to follow You. Truly, help us see the value of learning more of the Bible’s teachings so we can show others Jesus Christ and His love through our actions and words. For the sake of His glorious kingdom,  Amen.

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. . .”
