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!

“Armor of God” Responsive Prayer: Ephesians 6:10-17

Pastor/Leader/One: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.

People/All: We will put on the full armor of God, so that we can stand against the devil’s schemes.

Pastor/Leader/One: Know that our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

People/All: We will put on the full armor of God, so that we can stand against the devil’s schemes.

Pastor/Leader/One: Yes, put on the full armor of God then, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

People/All: We will put on the full armor of God, so that we can stand against the devil’s schemes. 

Pastor/Leader/One: Stand firm, with the belt of truth buckled round your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.

People/All: We will put on the full armor of God, so that we can stand against the devil’s schemes.

Pastor/Leader/One: In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

People/All: We will put on the full armor of God, so that we can stand against the devil’s schemes.

Pastor/Leader/One: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Amen.
