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 96 (NLT)
Sing a new song to the Lord! Let the whole earth sing to the Lord! Sing to the Lord; praise his name. Each day proclaim the good news that he saves. Publish his glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things he does. Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise! He is to be feared above all gods. The gods of other nations are mere idols, but the Lord made the heavens! Honor and majesty surround him; strength and beauty fill his sanctuary.
O nations of the world, recognize the Lord; recognize that the Lord is glorious and strong. Give to the Lord the glory he deserves! Bring your offering and come into his courts. Worship the Lord in all his holy splendor. Let all the earth tremble before him. Tell all the nations, “The Lord reigns!” The world stands firm and cannot be shaken. He will judge all peoples fairly.
Let the heavens be glad, and the earth rejoice! Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise! Let the fields and their crops burst out with joy! Let the trees of the forest sing for joy before the Lord, for he is coming! He is coming to judge the earth. He will judge the world with justice, and the nations with his truth.
O Lord our God: We join with the voices of heaven and earth to praise your great Name –
+ for you are matchless in power, wisdom, and love…
+ for you made everything in heaven and earth, you made us…
+ for you are matchless in faithfulness and loving-kindness…
+ for you reign over heaven and earth with justice and truth…
O Lord our God: Give us songs to sing, arising from our experience of your saving grace –
+ refresh in us the joy of sins forgiven, and new life begun…
+ refresh in us words to express your loving-kindness and mercy…
+ refresh in us an all-pervading spirit of worship throughout our day…
+ refresh in us the commission to go into all the world and make disciples…
O Lord our God: Give us new songs to sing to welcome Jesus, our coming King. Prepare our hearts to receive him at a moment’s notice for he comes to reveal your glory, and to judge the earth in righteousness and truth. It’s in his Name we pray. Amen.
” Psalm 96″ [Let The Earth Rejoice] – Robbie Seay Band
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.
