Calls To Worship


Adapted from Isaiah 40

Leader: Have you not known? Have you not heard?

The Lord is the everlasting God,

the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He does not faint or grow weary;

his understanding is unsearchable.

People: He gives power to the faint,

and strengthens the powerless.

Even youths will faint and be weary,

and the young will fall exhausted;

but those who wait for the Lord

shall renew their strength.

Leader: What happens when we wait for the Lord?

People: We shall renew our strength.

We shall mount up with wings like eagles,

we shall run and not be weary,

 we shall walk and not faint.

Adapted from Isaiah 40:28-31

Do you not know? Have you not heard?

The Lord is the everlasting God, the creator of the ends of the earth. 

He will not grow tired or weary.

And his understanding no one can fathom.

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.

Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall.

But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles; 

They will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

So let us praise God together today.

Adapted from Psalm 103:1-5

Praise the Lord, my soul;  

All my inmost being, praise his holy name.  

Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits 

Who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, 

Who redeems your life from the pit, 

And crowns you with love and compassion,  

Who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

In the midst of new dimensions, in the face of changing ways

Who will lead your pilgrim people, wandering in their separate ways?

God of rainbow, fiery pillar, leading where the eagles soar.

We your people, ours the journey, now and evermore.
