Calls To Worship


Adapted from Matthew 6:25-33

Jesus says, “Therefore, I tell you 

Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or wear. 

Is not life more than food or clothes? 

Look at the birds of the air. They do not sew or reap or store up in barns. Yet your heavenly Father feeds them. 

Are you not more valuable than they? 

Can one of you, by worrying, add a single hour to your life? 

But seek first, God’s kingdom and righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 

Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.” 

We surrender our worries for tomorrow to you as we worship you today.

Wonderful Counselor, open our ears

So we may hear your song

God is with us, God is near


Mighty God, open our eyes

So we may see you at work

For goodness, truth, and justice


Everlasting Father, open our hearts

So we may release our worry,

Our loneliness, and our striving


Prince of Peace, open our hands

So we may take yours and each other’s

And walk together the path of grace

Lord, we come here with lots of things on our minds, but now we turn our focus to you.

Help us to put aside our schedules and “to do” lists, and replace our worry with peace.

Guide us as we worship, lifting up our voices to show you our gratitude.

Let us learn and grow and be transformed as we worship the Living God!
