Greeting and Doxology

PSALM 119: 169-176
May I live to praise you, upheld by our word.

I rejoice before you, Lord,
let your word
bring me light.
my prayer,
rescue me
as you promise.

May praise be on my lips,
because you taught
me your rule.
May praise be
on my tongue,
because your com
mands are just.

Reach out and lead me,
choose your path.
I long
to be safe, Lord,
your law is
my delight.

May I live to praise you,
by your word.

If I stray like a lost sheep,
out your servant
for I never for
get your laws.

2 Peter 1:10-11
Brothers and sisters, be all the more eager to confirm your call and election, for if you do this, you will never stumble. For in this way, entry into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be richly provided for you.

Draw me to yourself, O God of mercy, and I shall live.

Praise the Lord, the God of Israel,
who shepherds the people and
sets them free.

God raises from David’s house
a child with
power to save.
Through the holy prophets
God promised in
ages past
to save us from enemy hands,
from the grip of
all who hate us.

The Lord favored our ancestors
recalling the
sacred covenant,
the pledge to our an
cestor Abraham,
to free us
from our enemies,
so we might worship without fear
and be holy and just
all our days.

And you child, will be called
Prophet of
the Most High,
for you will come to prepare
a pathway
for the Lord
by teaching the peo
ple salvation
through forgiveness
of their sin.

Out of God’s
deepest mercy
a dawn will come
from on high,
light for those sha
dowed by death,
a guide for our feet on the
way to peace.

Challenging God, refreshed by our rest we commit ourselves once again to walk the path of life.
You invite us to walk with you:
~ Deepen our faith.

You call us to mirror your Spirit:
~ Inflame our hearts with love.

You ask us to attend to your word:
~ Open our ears.

You prod us to tear down and to build up:
~ Strengthen our conviction.

You challenge us to abandon sinfulness:
~ Purify our hearts.

You promise us unending life:
~ Be our hope.


God of Miriam and Moses, you led your people through the desert. You guided them by day and night and made with them your covenant of love. Let us walk with you in faithfulness, following the way shown to us by Jesus and the prophets. Be with us our journey, O God of mercy. Amen.

May God’s blessing be upon us. Amen
May God’s light lead us in the way of Righteousness. Amen.
May our lives be patterned on Christ Jesus. Amen.
