Calls To Worship


Adapted from Psalm 19:7-10

Leader:            The instructions of the Lord are perfect, reviving the soul.

People:           The commandments of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart.

Leader:            The laws of the Lord are true; each one is fair.

People:           They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold.

                        They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from the comb! 

All:                  Let us worship God!

Adapted from Psalm 84

How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty!  

My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord;  

My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.  

Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere. 

I would rather be the doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked. 

Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you.

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.

Adapted from Romans 7:18-25

Pastor: For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh.

All: For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing.

Pastor: Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me. So, I find it to be a law that when I want to do right, evil lies close at hand. For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being, but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members.

All: Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin.
