Daniel 2


Call to Worship: Psalm 67:1-5 (NIV)

    May God be gracious to us and bless us
             and make his face shine on us—
    so that your ways may be known on earth,
             your salvation among all nations.

     May the peoples praise you, God;
             may all the peoples praise you.
     May the nations be glad and sing for joy,
             for you rule the peoples with equity
            and guide the nations of the earth.
     May the peoples praise you, God;
             may all the peoples praise you.

Scripture Reading: Psalm 72:1-8, 15a (NIV)

     Endow the king with your justice, O God,
              the royal son with your righteousness.
     May he judge your people in righteousness,
              your afflicted ones with justice.

    May the mountains bring prosperity to the people,
              the hills the fruit of righteousness.
    May he defend the afflicted among the people
              and save the children of the needy;
             may he crush the oppressor.
     May he endure as long as the sun,
              as long as the moon, through all generations.
     May he be like rain falling on a mown field,
              like showers watering the earth.
     In his days may the righteous flourish
              and prosperity abound till the moon is no more.

     May he rule from sea to sea
              and from the River to the ends of the earth.

15      Long may he live!
