Calls to Worship on Family
Adapted from Psalm 22:25-31
From you comes my praise in the great congregation;
my vows I will pay before those who fear him.
The poor shall eat and be satisfied;
those who seek him shall praise the Lord.
May your hearts live forever!
All the ends of the earth shall remember
and turn to the Lord;
and all the families of the nations
shall worship before him.
For dominion belongs to the Lord,
and he rules over the nations.
To him, indeed, shall all who sleep in the earth bow down;
before him shall bow all who go down to the dust,
and I shall live for him.
Posterity will serve him;
future generations will be told about the Lord,
and proclaim his deliverance to a people yet unborn,
saying that he has done it.
For the beauty of human love
Brother, sister, parent, child.
Friends on earth and friends above,
For all gentle thoughts and mild;
Lord of all, to thee we raise,
This, our hymn of grateful praise.
We come to you, today, Lord, to offer our thanks for all you do.
