Calls To Worship
As we are called into worship today,
it is sobering to remember
that when God appeared on earth in the person of Jesus, most of the world did not recognize him
and therefore did not worship him.
Today we ask for the faith that will open our eyes
to see Jesus for who he is,
that we might worship him in truth.
People of God, behold and see your God!
We open our eyes to see his glory.
We open our ears to hear his wisdom.
We open our hands to offer him gifts.
We open our mouths to sing his praise.
We open our hearts to offer him our love.
He is Lord!
When Jesus speaks, our hearts burn within us;
Our eyes are opened when he breaks the bread.
Beloved, we are God’s children now;
When Christ is revealed, we will be like him.
Worthy is Christ, the Lamb who was slain.
Blessing and honor and glory to God!

Adapted from Psalm 119
Leader: May the Lord open our eyes, so that we may behold wondrous things out of his word.
People: May he turn our hearts to his decrees and away from selfish gain.
Leader: The Lord is near, and all his commandments are true.
People: His decrees are our heritage forever; they are the joy of our hearts.
All: Accept, Lord, our offering of praise, and teach us your word.
