Psalm 119 l

Leader: Oh, how I love your law! It is my meditation all day long.

People: Your commandment makes me wiser than my enemies, for it is always with me.

Leader: I have more understanding than all my teachers, for your decrees are my meditation.

People: I understand more than the aged, for I keep your precepts.

Leader: I hold back my feet from every evil way, in order to keep your word.

People: I do not turn away from your ordinances, for you have taught me.

Leader: How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

People: Through your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.

O God, our Father in heaven, as Your followers, we thank You for telling us about Your nature and character in the Bible. Your word does make us wise and enables us to live with confidence in You. As we meditate on Your word and learn more about You, please give us greater understanding, so we can keep away from evil and share Your grace and truth with others. As we begin a new week, fill us with the Holy Spirit, so we can bring happiness to Your heart in accordance with the purposes of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  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. . .”
