Psalm 119 r

Leader: Those who persecute me with evil purpose draw near; they are far from your law.

People: Yet you are near, O LORD, and all your commandments are true. Long ago I learned from your decrees that you have established them forever.

Leader: Look on my misery and rescue me, for I do not forget your law.

People: Plead my cause and redeem me; give me life according to your promise.

Leader: Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek your statutes.

People: Great is your mercy, O LORD; give me life according to your justice.

Leader: Many are my persecutors and my adversaries, yet I do not swerve from your decrees.

People: Consider how I love your precepts; preserve my life according to your steadfast love. Your word is truth. Every one of your righteous ordinances endures forever.

Heavenly Father, Grant us the assurance of Your saving presence and power when we face those who would tempt us to turn from righteousness. Grant us a true understanding of Your word. We trust in Your word and daily guidance as we pray in Jesus' Name. 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. . .”
