Praying the Psalms

+ In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen!

Opening – (Northumbria Community)

One thing I have asked of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life; to behold the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple.

Praise to You, Lord Jesus Christ, King of endless glory.

Morning Reading: Psalm 47 (NLT)

Come, everyone! Clap your hands! Shout to God with joyful praise! For the Lord Most High is awesome. He is the great King of all the earth. He subdues the nations before us, putting our enemies beneath our feet. He chose the Promised Land as our inheritance, the proud possession of Jacob’s descendants, whom he loves.

God has ascended with a mighty shout. The Lord has ascended with trumpets blaring. Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises! For God is the King over all the earth. Praise him with a psalm. God reigns above the nations, sitting on his holy throne. The rulers of the world have gathered together with the people of the God of Abraham. For all the kings of the earth belong to God. He is highly honored everywhere.

Morning Prayer

O Lord our God: you are the great King over all the earth; you constrain your enemies to fulfill your sovereign purpose –

+ You bring good out of evil that all may praise you…
+ You shield your people and fill us with truth and joy…

O Lord our God: you are the great King over heaven and earth; you have chosen and secured an inheritance for all your people –

+ You have given the holy land to your people Israel…
+ You have given heaven to all your people in Christ…
+ You have secured your promises for all who repent and turn to you…

O Lord our God: you are the great King over heaven and earth; kings and kingdoms, and all the rulers and peoples of the earth, will one day bow before you – then every knee shall bow and tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, all to your glory.

Blessing – (Northumbrian Community)

May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you, wherever He may send you. May He guide you through the wilderness, protect you through the storm. May He bring you home rejoicing at the wonders He has shown you. May He bring you home rejoicing once again into our doors.
