Psalm 145 c

Leader: The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food in due season.

People: You open your hand, satisfying the desire of every living thing.

Leader: The LORD is just in all his ways, and kind in all his doings.

People: The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.

Leader: He fulfills the desire of all who fear him; he also hears their cry, and saves them.

People: The LORD watches over all who love him, but all the wicked he will destroy. My mouth will speak the praise of the LORD, and all flesh will bless his holy name forever and ever.

Heavenly Father, You are the giver of every good and perfect gift. We thank you this day for meeting all of our needs. If we need material things, we look to You and make known to You our concerns. If we need spiritual things, forgiveness, reconciliation, strength, the assurance of Your presence, we look to You and trust in Your loving faithfulness to us. You fulfill every worthy desire of our hearts. We trust in Your word and Your many precious promises to us. Watch over us that we might always praise Your Name in 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. . .”
