Calls To Worship
Adapted from Genesis 32
In the morning when the sun rises we shall praise You, O Lord.
People: You have delivered us through every long night and given us safe passage across rivers of struggle.
Leader: The darkness is past; the light has come. Let us raise our song and prayer to you, O Lord, in joy.
Adapted from Psalm 22:25-31
From you comes my praise in the great congregation;
my vows I will pay before those who fear him.
The poor shall eat and be satisfied;
those who seek him shall praise the Lord.
May your hearts live forever!
All the ends of the earth shall remember
and turn to the Lord;
and all the families of the nations
shall worship before him.
For dominion belongs to the Lord,
and he rules over the nations.
To him, indeed, shall all who sleep in the earth bow down;
before him shall bow all who go down to the dust,
and I shall live for him.
Posterity will serve him;
future generations will be told about the Lord,
and proclaim his deliverance to a people yet unborn,
saying that he has done it.
Adapted from Psalm 146:5-10
Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in the Lord their God.
He is the Maker of heaven and earth,
The sea, and everything in them—
He remains faithful forever.
He upholds the cause of the oppressed
And gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets prisoners free,
The Lord gives sight to the blind,
The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down,
The Lord loves the righteous.
The Lord watches over the foreigner
And sustains the fatherless and the widow,
But he frustrates the ways of the wicked.
The Lord reigns forever.
So humble us, O Lord, we pray as we gather to worship you.
