We continue Christ in the Psalms this week at Park Church with Psalm 75. Here’s how you can prepare for worship:
1. Read through our text, Psalm 75.
Psalm 75 answers some of the questions raised in Psalm 73 and 74. What is the end of the wicked? When will You act, God? How long, O Lord? God has a set time when He will judge the boastful and the wicked, through the means of the cup of His wrath.
As you read the passage, consider asking yourself the following three questions:
- How does this Psalm help me pray?
- How does this Psalm help me feel?
- How does this Psalm help me see Jesus?
2. Read, pray and sing through the service:
CALL TO WORSHIP: Psalm 96:1–4;11–13
CONFESSION OF SIN: From Every Season Prayer by Scotty Smith
Dear heavenly Father,
when we were dead in our sins and trespasses,
You raised us to new life in Christ.
We praise You for so great a salvation,
so glorious a hope, and so firm a standing in grace.
We humble ourselves before You today,
in gratitude and repentance.
Forgive us for our attitudes that deny Your grace.
Forgive us for our words that violate peace.
Forgive us for our habits that sabotage beauty.
Forgive us for our passivity that accepts the unacceptable.
Forgive us for our greed that fuels our idolatry.
Forgive us for our pettiness that robs people we love.
Forgive us for our unbelief that robs You of glory.
Have mercy on us, Lord; have mercy on me.
In Jesus’ strong and loving name.
