L: The heavens declare the glory of God;

C: the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

L: Day after day they pour forth speech;

C: night after night they reveal knowledge.

L: May these words of my mouth

C: and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Opening Prayer:                                                             Judi Berger

O God, you spoke your word and revealed your good news in Jesus, the Christ. Fill all creation with that word again, so that by proclaiming your joyful promises to all nations, and singing of our glorious hope to all peoples, we may become one living body, your incarnate presence on the earth. Amen.
