Psalm 40 a

Leader: I waited patiently for the Lord. He inclined to me and heard my cry.

People: He drew me up from the desolate pit, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure.

Leader: He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God.

People: Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord.

Leader: Happy are those who make the Lord their trust, who do not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after false gods.

People: You have multiplied, O Lord my God, your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us. None can compare with you. Were I to proclaim and tell of them, they would be more than can be counted.

Heavenly Father, we glorify You as the Lord of love and faithfulness. You have proven Your faithfulness to us in the Scriptures and in our experience. We trust in Your love, which mightly movesYou to care for us. We will continue to sing songs of praise to You and proclaim Your wonderful deeds. Help us to wait patiently on You, even as we pray for You to meet our many needs. O God, we trust in You day be day, knowing that You have foreseen our every need and will help us. May others come to know You too, even as we pray in Jesus’ name: “Our Father. . .”
