Calls To Worship
Adapted from Psalm 145:13b-18
Leader: The Lord is faithful in all his words and kind in all his works.
People: The Lord upholds all who are falling and raises up all who are bowed down.
Leader: The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food in due season.
People: You open your hand; you satisfy the desire of every living thing.
Leader: The Lord is righteous in all his ways and kind in all his works.
People: The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.
Leader: Let us worship the Lord with all of our being!
Adapted from Psalm 146:5-10
Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in the Lord their God.
He is the Maker of heaven and earth,
The sea, and everything in them—
He remains faithful forever.
He upholds the cause of the oppressed
And gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets prisoners free,
The Lord gives sight to the blind,
The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down,
The Lord loves the righteous.
The Lord watches over the foreigner
And sustains the fatherless and the widow,
But he frustrates the ways of the wicked.
The Lord reigns forever.
So humble us, O Lord, we pray as we gather to worship you.

Adapted from Psalm 146
Leader: Happy are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord their God.
People: Who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them; who keeps faith forever.
Leader: The Lord sets the prisoners free, opens the eyes of the blind, and lifts up those who are bowed down. People: The Lord will reign forever, your God, O Zion, for all generations. Praise the Lord!
Leader: Let us worship God!
O Holy Spirit, come into my heart;
By your power draw it to yourself, God,
And give me charity with fear.
Guard me, Christ, from every evil thought,
And so warm and enflame me again
With your most gentle love
That every suffering may seem light to me.
My holy Father and my gentle Lord,
Help me in my every need.
Christ love! Christ love!
Adapted from Psalm 121
We lift up our eyes to the mountains.
Where does our help come from?
Our help comes from the Lord,
The maker of heaven and earth.
God will not let your foot slip,
The Lord will watch over our coming and our going,
Both now and forevermore.
