Psalm 119 j

Leader: Your hands have made and fashioned me; give me understanding that I may learn your commandments.

People: Those who fear you shall see me and rejoice, because I have hoped in your word.

Leader: I know, O LORD, that your judgments are right, and that in faithfulness you will humble us.

People: Let your steadfast love become my comfort according to your promises.

Leader: Let your mercy come to me, that I may live; for your law is my delight.

People: I will meditate on your precepts. Let those who fear you turn to me, so that they may know your decrees. May my heart be blameless in your statutes, so that I may not be put to shame.

O Lord, our God, Creator of heaven and earth, help us to learn your commandments, treasure them in our hearts, and understand your perfect will as revealed in the Bible. Whenever necessary, humble us and remind us that following your law is always for our best and the well-being of others. As we remember your promises, may we always rejoice that they are based on your steadfast love. Help us show your mercy to others as you have shown mercy to us through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in whose Name we pray. 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. . .”
