L Why do you say "my way is hidden from the Lord, and my right is disregarded by my God"? Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary and his understanding is unsearchable. (Isaiah 40:27-28) Let us confess our lack of trust in the Lord.
Silence for confession and reflectionL Hallelujah!
C How good it is to sing praises to our God! How pleasant it is to honor God with praise! (For) the Lord heals the brokenhearted (and) lifts up the lowly. (Psalm 147:1, 3, 6)
L The Lord gives power to the faint, and strengthens the powerless (so that) those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:29-31)
