Psalm 92

Leader:  It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to your name, O Most High; to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night.

People: For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your work. At the works of your hands I sing for joy.

Leader: How great are your works, O Lord! Your thoughts are very deep! Though the wicked sprout like grass and all evildoers flourish, they are doomed to destruction forever.

People: But you, O Lord, are on high forever. For your enemies shall perish. All evildoers shall be scattered.

Leader: The righteous flourish like the palm tree, and grow like a cedar. They are planted in the house of the Lord. They flourish in the courts of our God.

People: In old age they still produce fruit. They are always green and full of sap, showing that the Lord is upright. He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.

O God, You are the delight and joy of our lives. You never fail us, though we sometimes fail You. Though we sometimes sin against You and others, You always love and forgive us when we come to You. Fill us now with Your Holy Spirit, and heal all our dis-ease and diseases. Hear us now, 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. . .”
