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 93 (NLT)
The Lord is king! He is robed in majesty. Indeed, the Lord is robed in majesty and armed with strength. The world stands firm and cannot be shaken.
Your throne, O Lord, has stood from time immemorial. You yourself are from the everlasting past. The floods have risen up, O Lord. The floods have roared like thunder; the floods have lifted their pounding waves. But mightier than the violent raging of the seas, mightier than the breakers on the shore—the Lord above is mightier than these!
Your royal laws cannot be changed. Your reign, O Lord, is holy forever and ever.
O Lord our God: Your reign over heaven and earth is permanent, established forever –
+ for you quiet the tumult of rebellious people…
+ for you repel their wrath and rage, their insurrection…
+ for you turn their wickedness into praise of your Name…
O Lord our God: You are faithful in the wind and the rain, and the floods of life; we rely on the truth of your Word. Give us wisdom and strength to readily obey you as your Spirit leads us that you might be glorified. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
“Psalm 93” (The Flood) – Jason Silver
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, and 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.
+ In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
