Psalm 74 & 75

Leader: How long, O God, is the foe to scoff? Is the enemy to revile your name forever? Why do you hold back your hand?

People: Yet God my King is from of old, working salvation in the earth.

Leader: Yours is the day, yours also the night. You established the luminaries and the sun.

People: You have fixed all the bounds of the earth. You made summer and winter.

Leader: We give thanks to you, O God. We give thanks. Your name is near. People tell of your wondrous deeds.

People: I will rejoice forever. I will sing praises to the Lord my God. The righteous shall be exalted forever.

Heavenly Father, though others may scoff and ridicule You, we will honor and praise You forever. Though others may defame Your name before the nations, we will glorify Your name over all the Earth. Though others may persecute those who love You, we will demonstrate our love for You daily and trust in Your faithfulness. Though others may complain, we will thank You for the many blessings we receive from You. We thank You, Father, that we can worship You with those who love You and one another, even as we pray in the name of 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. . .”
