Psalm 94

Leader:  He who planted the ear, does he not hear? He who formed the eye, does he not see? He who disciplines the nations, he who teaches knowledge to humankind, does he not chastise?

People: Happy are those whom you discipline, O Lord, and whom you teach out of your law, giving them respite from days of trouble.

Leader: For the Lord will not forsake his people. He will not abandon his heritage, for justice will return to the righteous, and all the upright in heart will follow it.

People: Can wicked rulers be allied with you, those who contrive mischief by statute? The Lord will repay them for their iniquity and wipe them out for their wickedness.

Leader: When I thought, “My foot is slipping,” your steadfast love, O Lord, held me up.

People: When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.

Father God, as the ancient Israelites lived in times of oppression, so many live under both spiritual and physical oppression today. Help us pray and work that many will come to find the true freedom that comes through faith in Jesus Christ, Who taught us to pray: “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. . .”
