Psalm 111

Praise the Lord!
I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart,
in the company of the upright, in the congregation.
Great are the works of the Lord,
studied by all who delight in them.
Full of honor and majesty is his work,
and his righteousness endures forever….
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
all those who practice it have a good understanding.
His praise endures forever.

Let Us Pray:

We give you thanks that you have gathered us together in faithful love, you made your dwelling in our homes by taking on human flesh in the person of Jesus Christ.

He declared your name and shared your strength. He touched the lonely and outcast. He healed the sick. He loved those no one thought worthy. He embodied your love and grace.

For his sake, who lived our common life, tasted joy and the suffering of death, but who rose from the dead. God, we come before you, exposed, vulnerable and publicly placing our lives before you.
At this table we remember in our act of receiving bread and cup, Christ welcomes us, and Christ gives us a new covenant that our shortcomings are forgiven and we can begin again.

In solidarity with those who were at that first table and with all the saints before us who shared the truth of this good news, we pray together…Our Father…. Amen.

Perhaps you can list 2–3 things, people, or aspects
of your life for which you are thankful today.
