Calls To Worship
Adapted from Psalm 126
When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then it was said among the nations, “The LORD has done great things for them.”
The LORD has done great things for us, and we rejoiced.
Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like the watercourses in the Negeb.
May those who sow in tears reap with shouts of joy.
Those who go out weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, carrying their sheaves.
Stuart Strachan Jr.
Adapted from Jeremiah 29:7,11
Seek the welfare of this city.
Pray to the Lord on its behalf
For in its welfare, you will find your welfare.
For I know the plans I have for you;
Plans not to harm you, but to give you a future and a hope.
In your plan, O God, you have sent us here. Please help us to seek the welfare of those around us. Equip us to that end as we worship you today.
