Psalm 66:8-20
Be joyful in God all you lands
Jubilate Deo

Bless our God, you peoples; *
  make the voice of his praise to be heard;

Who holds our souls in life, *
  and will not allow our feet to slip.

For you, O God, have proved us; *
  you have tried us just as silver is tried.

You brought us into the snare; *
  you laid heavy burdens upon our backs.

You let enemies ride over our heads;
    we went through fire and water; *
  but you brought us out into a place of refreshment.

I will enter your house with burnt-offerings
    and will pay you my vows, *
  which I promised with my lips
    and spoke with my mouth when I was in trouble.

I will offer you sacrifices of fat beasts
    with the smoke of rams; *
  I will give you oxen and goats.

Come and listen, all you who fear God, *
  and I will tell you what he has done for me.

I called out to him with my mouth, *
  and his praise was on my tongue.

If I had found evil in my heart, *
  the Lord would not have heard me;

But in truth God has heard me; *
  he has attended to the voice of my prayer.

Blessed be God, who has not rejected my prayer, *
  nor withheld his love from me.

Lord Jesus, we fully trust in You, the only begotten Son of God. We trust in Your power, Your love, Your mercy, Your willingness to forgive. Help us to follow You daily and live to the praise of Your glory, even as we now pray in Your name:
“Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.”
Genesis 8:13-19
The flood waters subside

8:13 By the first day of the first month of Noah’s six hundred and first year, the water had dried up from the earth. Noah then removed the covering from the ark and saw that the surface of the ground was dry. 14 By the twenty-seventh day of the second month the earth was completely dry.

15 Then God said to Noah, 16 “Come out of the ark, you and your wife and your sons and their wives. 17 Bring out every kind of living creature that is with you—the birds, the animals, and all the creatures that move along the ground—so they can multiply on the earth and be fruitful and increase in number on it.”

18 So Noah came out, together with his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives. 19 All the animals and all the creatures that move along the ground and all the birds—everything that moves on land—came out of the ark, one kind after another.

John 14:27-29
Peace I leave with you

14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

28 “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. 29 I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe.
