Leader: Put false ways far from me; and graciously teach me your law.

People: I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I set your ordinances before me.

Dear Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on this Christmas Eve we want to express our special thanks to You for coming to live with us as a human being. Thank You for putting aside Your kingly and heavenly glory to experience how we live and encourage us with Your divine and holy presence. We pray today that You will continue to be God with us even as You rule from Your throne in glory. Help us to acknowledge before others Your lordship of the universe, and help us also to submit to Your rule over our hearts. We open our lives to You today and everyday so Your Truth and Spirit will direct our steps and all our ways. Amen.

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

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.

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. . .”
