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 Proverbs 1:2-7

Leader:            For attaining wisdom and instruction,

                        for understanding words of insight,

People:           Let the wise listen and add to their learning,

                        and let the discerning get guidance

Leader:            for understanding proverbs and parables,

the saying and riddles of the wise.

People:           The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,

                        but fools despise wisdom and discipline.

All:                  Let us worship God!

Adapted from 2 Timothy 2:2

And the things you have heard me say

In the presence of many witnesses

Entrust to reliable people

Who will also be qualified to teach others.

Lord, as we worship you today, empower us to pass on what you have done in us to others.

Adapted from Psalm 122, Isaiah 2:3, Psalm 122:2, Isaiah 2:5

I was glad when they said to me,

“Let us go to the house of the Lord!”

Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,

that we may learn God’s ways

and walk in God’s paths.

Our feet are standing within your gates, O Jerusalem

Come, let us walk in the light of the Lord!
