Psalm 141 & 142

Leader: I call upon you, O LORD; come quickly to me. Give ear to my voice when I call to you. Let my prayer be counted as incense before you, and the lifting up of my hands as an evening sacrifice.

People: Set a guard over my mouth, O LORD. Keep watch over the door of my lips. Let the faithful correct me.

Leader: My eyes are turned toward you, O GOD, my Lord. In you I seek refuge; do not leave me defenseless.

People: With my voice I cry to the LORD. With my voice I make supplication to the LORD.

Leader: When my spirit is faint, you know my way.

People: The righteous will surround me, for you will deal bountifully with me.

Heavenly Father, thank You for calling us into Your Kingdom. Thank You for being ever present with us and ever willing to hear our prayers and supplications. Thank You for answering the prayers of Your Son in our behalf; as Jesus Christ promised to pray for us as our Advocate with the Father. May we understand the leading of Your Holy Spirit through Your word and as Your Spirit moves upon our spirits to direct us. In these troubled times, show us the way ahead and the path that we should walk. Give us a fresh faith in You; strong enough to cast out all our fears and keep us from worry. We thank You for loving us and inviting us to pray in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ as we 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. . .”
