Psalm 67 NRSV
One - May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face
to shine upon us,
All - that your way may be known upon earth, your saving power
among all nations. Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the
peoples praise you. Let the nations be glad and sing for joy, for
you judge the peoples with equity and guide the nations upon earth.
One - Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples
praise you. The earth has yielded its increase; God, our God, has
blessed us. May God continue to bless us; let all the ends of the
earth revere him.

our Tithes and Offerings
Pray with me.
You, O Lord, have gathered these people to you. We are not
"outcasts" like some in this world who struggle for their
daily bread. However, we confess, there are days when we feel
distant from you and your promises; when "life goes on"
and we seem left behind. Fill us again with the awareness of your
outstretched arms, and the sheer joy of living in your presence. May
this gathering be a "house of prayer for all people" like
Isaiah prophesied. May these offerings just now be pleasing to you,
not because we give them in exactly the right way, but because you
have made things right with us through your Son, Jesus. In the joy
of our salvation in him we pray. AMEN
Have mercy on me, O God,
according to your steadfast love;
according to your abundant mercy
blot out my transgressions.
Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
and cleanse me from my sin.
For I know my transgressions,
and my sin is ever before me.
Against you, you alone, have I sinned,
and done what is evil in your sight,
so that you are justified in your sentence
and blameless when you pass judgment.
Indeed, I was born in the midst of iniquity;
in the midst of sin my mother conceived me.
You desire truth in the inward being;
therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart.
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
wash me, and I shall be purer than snow.
Let me hear joy and gladness;
let the bones that you have crushed rejoice.
Hide your face from my sins,
and blot out all my iniquities.
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and put a new and right spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from your presence,
and do not take your holy spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of your salvation,
and sustain in me a willing spirit.
O Lord, open my lips,
and my mouth will declare your praise.
For you have no delight in sacrifice;
if I were to give a burnt offering, you would not be pleased.
The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.
