Psalm 149

Leader: Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise in the assembly of the faithful.

People: Let Israel be glad in its Maker. Let the children of Zion rejoice in their King. Let them praise his name with dancing, making melody to him with tambourine and lyre.

Leader: For the LORD takes pleasure in his people. He adorns the humble with victory. Let the faithful exult in glory.

People: Let the high praises of God be in their mouths. This is glory for all his faithful ones. Praise the LORD!

Lord God, cleanse our hearts, renew our minds, fill us with Your Holy Spirit as we worship You in spirit and in truth. Reveal unto us the deeper truths in Your word that will transform our lives and enable us to bless others by sharing our knowledge of You. Help us to reason together with You and understand how You demonstrate Your love, justice, mercy, forgiveness, and grace to us and others in Jesus Christ. If we fall into sin or find ourselves in danger of being misled, direct our steps and draw us closer to You that we might live wholly for You. Save us from slavery to sin or bad habits. Teach us to trust more in You and Your promises as we pray in the Name of our Lord and Savior 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. . .”
