    • Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come into his presence with singing. (Psalm 100:1-2)
    • I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord!” _(Psalm 122:1)
    • Call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.” _(Psalm 50:15)
    • Trust in God at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. (Psalm 62:8)
    • I lift up my eyes to the hills—from where will my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. (Psalm 121:1-2)
    • Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; Let everything that breathes praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! (Psalm 150:1,8)

  • Unison Prayer of Confession
    • Forgiving God, I confess my wrongdoing, and I am concerned about my sins. Do not abandon me, Lord! My God, do not remain far away from me! Hurry and help me, O Lord, my deliverer! Lord, you do not withhold your compassion from me. May your loyal love and faithfulness continually protect me! For innumerable dangers surround me. My sins overtake me, so I am unable to see; they outnumber the hairs of my head so my strength fails me. Please be willing, Lord, to rescue me. Lord, hurry and help me! (Psalm 38:18, 21-22; 40:11-13)
  • Assurance of Pardon
    • The mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting. May the God of mercy, who forgives us all our sins, strengthen us in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit give us new life.
    • Thanks be to God. In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven.
