His Love Endures Forever

Write a psalm of praise.

Leader:

1) Read the following Psalm together, asking each person to read a verse until you have read the whole Psalm.

2) After you have read this passage, then assign different people in the group 3 to 4 verses and fill in the blanks (as provided in the following Psalm) with their own praises (the number of blanks per group will depend on the number of people in attendance).

3) After you have given the group a few minutes to fill in the blanks, read your new Psalm out loud together, each person reading what they added.

4) Pray a prayer of praise for God's love that endures forever!
