Responsive Reading from Psalm 93
Leader: The Lord reigns and is robed in majesty;
People: yes, the Lord is robed in majesty and armed with strength!
Leader: Indeed, the world is established, firm and secure.
All: Your throne was established long ago; you are from all eternity.
Almighty and gracious God, listen to that which is beyond our words. Listen to the longing that reaches toward you and the gratitude that beats in our hearts and fills us with joy for everything that is just and true and good. Forgive us for taking it all for granted, for acting as though it is not a gift but a right. We come today in the name of Jesus acknowledging our need
and your grace. Amen.
