Psalm 46

Leader: God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

People: Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea; though the mountains tremble with its tumult.

Leader: There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High. God is in the midst of the city.

People: The nations are in an uproar, the kingdoms totter. He utters his voice, the earth melts. The Lord of hosts is with us. The God of Jacob is our refuge.

Leader: Come, behold the works of the Lord. He makes wars cease to the end of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear.

People: “Be still, and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth.” The Lord of hosts is with us.

Heavenly Father, we thank You for creating us in Your image. We thank You for the ability to reason, make decisions, and enjoy the beautiful world You created. We thank You for meaningful relationships with You and others, made possible through Jesus Christ our Lord. We thank You for Your Spirit, Who indwells us and guides us daily. We give thanks for the gift of eternal life, even as we pray in Jesus’ name: “Our Father. . .”
