Call To Worship: Psalm 111
Praise the LORD!
I will give thanks to the LORD with all my heart,
in the company of the upright and in the assembly.
Great are the works of the LORD;
they are studied by all who delight in them.
Splendid and majestic is His work,
and His righteousness endures forever.
He has made His wonders to be remembered;
the LORD is gracious and compassionate.
He has given food to those who fear Him;
He will remember His covenant forever.
He has made known to His people the power of His works,
in giving them the heritage of the nations.
The works of His hands are truth and justice;
all His precepts are sure.
They are upheld forever and ever;
they are performed in truth and uprightness.
He has sent redemption to His people;
He has ordained His covenant forever.
Holy and awesome is His name.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom;
a good understanding have all those who do His commandments.
His praise endures forever.
Classic Prayer: Augustine
Great are you O Lord, and greatly to be praised; great is your power, and of your wisdom there is no end. And man, being a part of your creation, desires to praise you—man who bears about with him his mortality, the witness of his sin, even the witness that you resist the proud—yet man, this part of your creation desires to praise you. You move us to delight in praising you; for you have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you. Amen.
