A Congregational Responsive Reading of Psalm 46 – led by two voices

Reader 1:     God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Reader 2:     God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

All:              “Be still, and know that I am God!”

Reader 1:    Because God is our refuge and strength we will not fear, though the earth should change.

Reader 2:     Though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;

Reader 1:     Though its waters roar and foam,

Reader 2:     Though the mountains tremble with it tumult.

All:              God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Reader 1:     There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High.

Reader 2:     God is in the midst of the city; it shall not be moved;

Reader 1:     God will help it when the morning dawns,

Reader 2:     The nations are in an uproar, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice and the earth melts.

All:              The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge!

Reader 1:     Come, behold the works of the Lord; see what he has done.

Reader 2:     He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow, and shatters the spear; and burns the shields with fire. 

All:              “Be still, and know that I am God!”

Reader 1:     “I am exalted among the nations.”

Reader 2:     “I am exalted in the earth.”

All:             The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge!

Congregational Responsive Prayer based on 1 Thessalonians 5:14-24

LEADER 1: Brothers and sisters in Christ, we urge not to be lazy in your spiritual life or in you studies in college for God.

ALL:  God will make this happen in us, for he who calls us is faithful.

LEADER 2: Encourage those who are timid and fearful. Take tender care of those who are weak. Be patient with everyone.

ALL:  God will make this happen in us, for he who calls us is faithful.

LEADER 3:  See that no one pays back evil for evil, wrong for wrong, or bad words for bad word, but always try to do good to each other and to all people.

ALL:  God will make this happen in us, for he who calls us is faithful.

LEADER 1:  Always be joyful.  Never stop praying.  Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.

ALL:  God will make this happen in us, for he who calls us is faithful.

LEADER 2:  Do not stifle, quench or hinder the Holy Spirit in His work in your life or that of others.

ALL:  God will make this happen in us, for he who calls us is faithful.

LEADER 3:  Do not scoff at preaching, teaching, and those who share God’s word with you.  Just test everything that is said. Hold on to all that is good. Stay away from all every type of evil.

ALL:  God will make this happen in us, for he who calls us is faithful.

FINAL BLESSING:  (Could be all three voices together or one other)

Now may the God of peace make you holy in every way, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again.  God will make this happen, for he who calls you is faithful.
