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!

Psalm 103 Responsive Prayer for Public Worship

Worship Leader: Let us give praise to the Lord together.

Women:  Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

Men: Bless the Lord, O my soul, and do not forget all his benefits—

Worship Leader:   He forgives all your iniquity and heals all your diseases, He redeems your life from the Pit, and crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,

Women:   Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

Men:  Bless the Lord, O my soul, and do not forget all his benefits—

Worship Leader: He satisfies you with good as long as you live, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

All:  Bless the Lord, O my soul!

Worship Leader:  The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. He will not always accuse, nor will he keep his anger forever.  He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities.

Women:    For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him,

Men:  as far as the east is from the west, so far he removes our transgressions from us.

Worship Leader: As a father has compassion for his children, so the Lord has compassion for those who fear him. For he knows how we were made; he remembers that we are dust.

Women: Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

Men:  Bless the Lord, O my soul, and do not forget all his benefits—

Worship Leader:  The steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children, to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.

 All:  Bless the Lord, O my soul!

Worship Leader:  The Lord has established his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules over all.

Women:  Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

Men:   Bless the Lord, O my soul, and do not forget all his benefits—

All:  Bless the Lord, O my soul!
