Psalm 70 & 71

Leader: Be pleased, O God, to deliver me O Lord, make haste to help me!

People: Let those be put to shame and confusion who seek my life.

Leader: Let those be turned back and brought to dishonor who desire to hurt me.

People: Let all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you.

Leader: Let those who love your salvation say evermore, “God is great!”

People: But I am poor and needy; hasten to me, O God!

Leader: You are my help and my deliverer; O Lord, do not delay!

People: Be to me a rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me.

Leader: My mouth is filled with your praise, and with your glory all day long.

People: My mouth will tell of your righteous acts, of your deeds of salvation, though their number is past my knowledge.

Leader: I will come praising the mighty deeds of the Lord God. I will praise your righteousness, yours alone.

People: My lips will shout for joy when I sing praises to you. My soul also, which you have rescued.

O Lord, we trust in You and Your lovingkindness to save us from all of our enemies, those within and those without. Defend and protect our loved ones, and fill them with love and trust in You, even as we pray in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ: “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. . .”
