Psalm 150

Leader: Praise the LORD! Praise God in his sanctuary. Praise him in his mighty firmament!

People: Praise him for his mighty deeds. Praise him according to his surpassing greatness!

Leader: Praise him with trumpet sound. Praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance. Praise him with strings and pipe!

People: Praise him with clanging cymbals. Praise him with loud clashing cymbals! Let everything that breathes praise the LORD! Praise the LORD!

Heavenly Father, Lord God of the universe, we seek to praise You with all our heart. We set apart this time of our lives exclusively for You, to bow our hearts and minds before You in humble adoration. We set apart this place of worship as a sanctuary, even as we set apart our hearts as a sanctuary, for Your indwelling holy presence. We ask that You guide our thoughts and words as we praise You, that we might approach in expression sincere praises that You find worthy of Your surpassing greatness. We pray that someday soon everything that breathes will praise Your holy Name. Help us pray with happy hearts in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who taught us to pray, “Our Father. . .”

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.

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. . .”
