The Call to Prayer

God has gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of the ram’s-horn.

Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises.

For God is King of all the earth; sing praises with all your skill.

God reigns over the nation; God sits upon his holy throne.

Psalm 47:5-8

A Reading

Then addressing the crowds Jesus said . . . “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you that kill the prophets and stone those who are sent to you! How often have I longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you refused! Look! Your house will be deserted, for, I promise, you shall not see me any more until you are saying: Blessed is he who is coming in the name of the Lord!”

Matthew 23:37-39

The Morning Psalm: In Your Light We See Light

Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, and your faithfulness to the clouds.

Your righteousness is like the strong mountains, your justice like the great deep; you save both man and beast, O LORD.

How priceless is your love, O God! Your people take refuge under the shadow of your wings.

They feast upon the abundance of your house; you give them drink from the river of your delights.

For with you is the well of life, and in your light we see light.

Continue your loving-kindness to those who know you, and your favor to those who are true of heart.

Psalm 36:5-12

 

The Refrain

For lo, your enemies, O LORD, lo, your enemies shall perish, and all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father in Heaven,

hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come,

your will be done

on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our sins,

as we forgive those who sin against us.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil;

for yours are the kingdom and the power and the glory

forever and ever.  Amen.

 

The Prayer Appointed for the Week

Almighty God, who through your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ overcame death and opened to us the gate of everlasting life: Grant that I, who celebrate with joy the day of the Lord’s resurrection, may be raised from the death of sin by your life-giving Spirit; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

 

The Concluding Prayer of the Church

Lord God, almighty and everlasting Father, you have brought me in safety to this new day.  Preserve me with your mighty power, that I may not fall into sin, nor be overcome by adversity; and in all that I do direct me to the fulfilling of your purpose; through Jesus Christ my Lord.  Amen.
