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 66 (NLT)

Shout joyful praises to God, all the earth! Sing about the glory of his name! Tell the world how glorious he is. Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! Your enemies cringe before your mighty power. Everything on earth will worship you; they will sing your praises, shouting your name in glorious songs.” Interlude

Come and see what our God has done, what awesome miracles he performs for people! He made a dry path through the Red Sea, and his people went across on foot. There we rejoiced in him. For by his great power he rules forever. He watches every movement of the nations; let no rebel rise in defiance. Interlude

Let the whole world bless our God and loudly sing his praises. Our lives are in his hands, and he keeps our feet from stumbling. You have tested us, O God; you have purified us like silver. You captured us in your net and laid the burden of slavery on our backs. Then you put a leader over us. We went through fire and flood, but you brought us to a place of great abundance.

Now I come to your Temple with burnt offerings to fulfill the vows I made to you— yes, the sacred vows that I made when I was in deep trouble. That is why I am sacrificing burnt offerings to you—the best of my rams as a pleasing aroma, and a sacrifice of bulls and male goats. Interlude

Come and listen, all you who fear God, and I will tell you what he did for me. For I cried out to him for help, praising him as I spoke. If I had not confessed the sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened. But God did listen! He paid attention to my prayer. Praise God, who did not ignore my prayer or withdraw his unfailing love from me.

This we ask through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Ruler of all, in unity with the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever. Amen.

“Psalm 66” (You Are Great) – Robbie Seay Band

Come and see what God has done.
See what God has done for every daughter and every son.
Oh come and hear what God has done.
For everyone who fears the Lord will sing of what He’s done.

And all the earth will shout Your praise.
And all the earth will sing Your name.
For You are great! For You are great!

How glorious Your name.
How awesome are Your ways.
For You are great! For You are great!

Oh come and see what God has done.
See what God has done for every daughter and every son.
Oh come and hear what God has done.
For everyone who fears the Lord will sing of what He’s done.

Oh and all the earth will shout Your praise.
And all the earth will sing Your name.
For You are great! For You are great!

Oh and all the earth will shout Your praise.
And all the earth will sing Your name.
For You are great! For You are great!

Oh how glorious Your name.
How awesome are Your ways.
For You are great! For You are great!

Come and see what God has done.
Oh see what God has done for every daughter and every son,
For everyone. Come…
