PSALM 27A Psalm of David.
The Lord is my light and my salvation,Whom shall I fear?The Lord is the strength of my life.Of whom shall I be afraid?When evil-doers came upon me to eat my flesh,My adversaries and my foes, they stumble and fall.Though a host should encamp against me,My heart shall not fear:Though war rises against me,Even then will I be confident.
One thing have I asked of the Lord, That will I seek after: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 meditate in his temple.
For in the day of trouble He will hide me in his shelter;Under the cover of his tent he will hide me.He will lift me up upon a rock.
My head shall be lifted up Above my enemies surrounding me.And I will offer in his tent sacrifices of joy.I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord.
Hear, O Lord,When I cry with my voice.Also have mercy on me,And answer me.When you said, Seek my face;My heart said to you,Lord, I will seek your face.Do not hide your face from me;Do not turn your servant away in anger.You have been my help. Do not cast me off or forsake me, O God of my salvation!When my father and my mother forsake me,The Lord will take me up.
Teach me your way, O Lord,And lead me on a level pathBecause of mine enemies.Do not deliver me to the will of my adversaries:For false witnesses have risen against me,And such as breathe cruelty.Oh, had I not believedThat I shall look upon the goodness of the LordIn the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;Be strong,And let your heart take courage.Wait for the Lord.
SHEMA & THE JESUS CREEDHear, O Israel: The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul and with all your might. You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.
THE LORD’S PRAYEROur Father in heaven,Hallowed be your name.Your Kingdom come.Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven.Give us this day our daily bread.Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.For yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever and ever
CLOSINGWe say Yes! Amen!Come Lord Jesus!
