Psalm 133 & 134

Leader: How very good and pleasant it is when believers live together in unity!

People: It is like the precious oil on the head, running down upon the beard.

Leader: It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion.

People: For there the LORD ordained his blessing, life forevermore.

Leader: Come, bless the LORD, all you servants of the LORD! Lift up your hands and bless the LORD.

People: May the LORD, maker of heaven and earth, bless you from Zion.

Heavenly Father, You have joined us together in faith and love through our Lord Jesus Christ. We bless You today for binding our hearts to You and to all those who trust in Your Son as Savior. Guard our hearts and minds so we can always maintain that unity of spirit, of faith, and love that empowers us to serve You in ways beyond our understanding. Help us to open our hearts to receive into our midst those You have called to labor with us for the sake of Your kingdom. By Your Spirit help us to join in prayer for one another and Christians around the world through 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. . .”
