Responsive Psalm

One: As for you, O LORD, you will not restrain
your mercy from me;
All: your steadfast love and your faithfulness will
ever preserve me!

One: For evils have encompassed me beyond number;
my iniquities have overtaken me,
and I cannot see;
All: they are more than the hairs of my head;
my heart fails me.

One: Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me!
All: O LORD, make haste to help me!

One: Let those be put to shame and disappointed altogether
who seek to snatch away my life;
All: Let those be turned back and brought to dishonour
who delight in my hurt!

One: Let those be appalled because of their shame
who say to me ‘Aha, Aha!’
All: But may all who seek you
rejoice and be glad in you;

One: May those who love your salvation say continually,
All: ‘Great is the LORD!’

One: As for me, I am poor and needy,
but the Lord takes thought for me.
All: You are my help and my deliverer;
do not delay, O my God!

Psalm 40:11-17 ESV

Sermon reading:
The Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. And he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. And he was with the wild animals, and the angels were ministering to him.

Mark 1:12-13 ESV

The Lord’s Prayer

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;
Forgive us our debts
as we forgive our debtors.
Lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom
and the power
and the glory
forever and ever,
Amen.
