So then you are no longer strangers
but you are citizens with the saints
and also members of the household of God.
Call to praise
I will sing to the Lord as long as I live;
I will sing praise to my God while I have being.
Glory to the Father,
and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning,
and will be for ever. Amen.
I will bless you, Lord, you give me
and even at night direct my heart.
I keep you, Lord, ever in my sight;
since you are at my right hand, I shall stand
And so my heart rejoices, my soul is glad;
even my body shall rest in safety.
For you will not leave my soul among the
nor let your beloved know decay.
You will show me the path of life,
the fullness of joy in your presence,
at your right hand happiness for ever.
Bless the Lord, O my soul.
O my God, you are very great.
You are clothed with honor and majesty,
wrapped in light as with a garment.
You make the winds your messengers,
fire and flame your ministers.
Call to discipleship
Let us hold to the standard of sound teaching that we have heard,
in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.
[Peter said,] “You that are Israelites, listen to what I have to say: Jesus of Nazareth, a man attested to you by God with deeds of power, wonders, and signs that God did through him among you, as you yourselves know—this man, handed over to you according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified and killed by the hands of those outside the law. But God raised him up, having freed him from death, because it was impossible for him to be held in its power. For David says concerning him, ‘I saw the Lord always before me, for he is at my right hand so that I will not be shaken; therefore my heart was glad, and my tongue rejoiced; moreover my flesh will live in hope. For you will not abandon my soul to Hades or let your Holy One experience corruption. You have made known to me the ways of life; you will make me full of gladness with your presence.’”

What stands out in this passage?
What does it say about God?
What does it say about us?
How can we pray for each other?
Our Father who art in heaven
Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil,
for thine is the kingdom, and the power,
and the glory forever. Amen.
If then there is any encouragement in
Christ, any consolation from love,
any sharing in the Spirit,
any compassion and sympathy,
be of the same mind, having the same
being in full accord and of one mind.
