Calls To Worship


Adapted from Exodus 15:26; Isaiah 6:10, 

God invites us into his healing presence with these words:

“I am the Lord, who heals you.”

Diseased, depressed, dysfunctional, defeated,

we come hungering for health that only God can provide.

God calls us to bring open eyes, hearing ears,

and tender hearts turned toward him, the Great Physician.

We bow before him in faith and expectancy!

Adapted from Psalm 20:6-7

Now this I know: 

The Lord gives victory to his anointed. 

He answers from his heavenly sanctuary 

With the victorious power of his right hand. 

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, 

But we trust in the name of the Lord our God. 

God, we proclaim our faith in you as we worship you today.

 Adapted from Romans 10:9-10

 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,”

And believe in your heart that God raised him from dead, 

You will be saved.

For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified. 

And it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.

God of grace, we profess our faith in you. Please show us your grace was we worship you today.

Adapted from Hebrews 11:8

By faith Abraham, 

When called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, 

Obeyed and went, 

Even though he did not know where he was going. 

Loving God, give us this same faith as we gather to worship you today.

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!

What does the Holy One require of us? 

To be just, kind, and humble before God. 

Give thanks to God with your whole heart. 

Great are the works of the Lord. 

Now faith, hope, and love abide; 

And the greatest of these is love.
