Psalm 77

Leader: I cry aloud to God that he may hear me. In the day of my trouble I seek the Lord. In the night my hand is stretched out without wearying for help from the Lord.

People: I commune with my heart in the night. I meditate and search my spirit: Has the steadfast love of the Lord ceased forever? Are his promises at an end for all time?

Leader: I will call to mind the deeds of the Lord. I will remember his wonders of old. I will always trust in the Lord.

People: I will meditate on all your work, and muse on your mighty deeds. Your way, O God, is holy and just.

Leader: You are the God who works wonders. You display your might and pour out your love upon your people.

People: With your strong arm you redeem your people.

All glory, laud, and honor belong to You, O God. You reign from on high and Your enemies tremble in Your presence. When I am weak, You are my strength. When I am discouraged, You are my hope. When I am suffering, You are my comfort. When I am ill, You are my Healer. Indeed, O God, You are everything to me. When life’s troubles seem overwhelming, help me to trust in You daily. Help me to remember that You are my Lord and Redeemer, even as I 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. . .”
