Psalm 125

Leader: Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever.

People: As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people, from this time on and forevermore.

Leader: For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous, so that the righteous might not stretch out their hands to do wrong.

People: Do good, O LORD, to those who are good, and to those who are upright in their hearts.

Leader: But those who turn aside to their own crooked ways the LORD will lead away with evildoers.

People: May God’s peace rest upon all His people!

Heavenly Father, in this fallen world, we face uncertainties that can shake our faith in You and rob us of our peace. Help us to trust more in Your power and willingness to surround us and protect us. Help us to understand the scriptures, and with renewed understanding believe more in You. Fill us with Your Spirit, so we can be upright in heart and do good to others. Guide us in all ours ways so we can tell others in word and deed about our Lord, Jesus Christ, who taught us to pray, “Our Father. . .”

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. . .”
