Psalm 22:27-28 - May 27 Call to Worship, Prayer for Help, and Song of Praise

This coming Lord's Day, the first part of the worship worship service will be from the closing stanzas of Psalm 22. This "crucifixion psalm" has come up several times recently, because it recounts for us that joy which was set before Christ, and for which He endured the cross.

As our Lord suffered the penalty of our sin, He was sustained by the hope of Christian worship assemblies, in which He would declare His Father's name to His brethren and sing His Father's praise (cf. Ps 22:22-26).

The Lord delights in our Lord's Day services as a partial fulfillment of that, as congregations on earth join that perfect worship of the great congregation in glory. We hope to hear more about that, by God's help, in morning worship on June 3rd.

But, even more, there is coming a day when the Lord has gathered in His people from all nations to the end of the earth, and all families throughout history. And it is then that the ultimate fulfillment of Psalm 22:27-31 will have been completed.

Lord's Day morning, May 27, we will look forward to that day with joy, even as we have a foretaste of it in the Lord's Day worship assembly. Won't you join us for that?

Lord-willing, these will be our Call to Worship, Prayer for Help, and Song of Praise:

(Elder) All the ends of the world shall remember and turn to the LORD, and all the families of the nations shall worship before You.
Psalm 22:27

Lord—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—Yours is the kingdom.
You rule over us, and indeed over all the nations.
Sit enthroned upon our praises this morning,
And help us by the ministry of Your Holy Spirit,
Which we ask through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord,
And Your people in this place say… AMEN!!
From Psalm 22:28
