L Thus says the LORD, Do not remember the former things, or consider the things of old. I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert that the people whom I formed for myself might declare my praise. (Isaiah 43:18-19,21)
Silence is kept for confession and reflection
L Let us proclaim the new thing that God has done.
C I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection that I may be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own, but one that comes through faith. (Philippians 3:8,9,10)
L When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then it was said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them." Forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, let us press on toward the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus. (Isaiah 43:1-2; Philippians 3:13-14)
