Calls To Worship


Adapted from Isaiah 2:3-5 

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

To the house of the God of Jacob. 

He will teach us his ways, 

So that we may walk in his paths. 

The law will go out from Zion, 

The word of the Lord from Jerusalem. 

God will judge between the nations 

And will settle disputes for many peoples. 

They will beat their swords in plowshares 

And their spears into pruning hooks. 

Nation will not take up sword against nation, 

Nor will they war any more. 

Come, house of Jacob, 

Let us walk in the light of the Lord. 

Austin D. Hill

Adapted from Psalm 16:5-9, 11

Leader: The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot. The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.

All: I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me.

Leader: I have set the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. Therefore, my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure.

All: You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Inspired by Psalm 23

Leader: Let us worship the God who satisfies our every need, the Good Shepherd who guides us to abundance and refreshment. Let us praise the God who specializes in the restoration of the soul, who navigates our perfect path, and is present with us in times of trouble. He is our Blessing and our Protector. God surrounds and nourishes us in the midst of the assailing forces that seek our destruction. Let us give thanks to our relentless God, the Hound of Heaven who pursues us with goodness and mercy all the days of our lives. Amen.

Adapted from Psalm 25:4-5

 Show us your ways, O Lord.

Teach us your paths

Guide us in your truth,

And teach us.

For you are God, our Savior,

And our hope is in you all day long.

Adapted from Psalm 119:9,11,105

How can a young person keep their way pure?

By living according to your word.

I have hidden your word in my heart,

That I might not sin against you.

Your word is a lamp unto my feet,

And a light unto my path. Almighty God, lead us through our questions today with your powerful word.

Adapted from Proverbs 3:5-6

 Leader: God says, “Trust in Me with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight.”

People: If in all our ways we acknowledge You, Lord, You will make our paths straight. We are not to be wise in your own eyes; but rather hold You in awe and respect, and turn away from evil.

Leader: If we do it will be a healing for our flesh and a refreshment for our bodies. That is what the word of the Lord says. Let us worship God.

 Adapted from Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart 

And lean not on your own understanding. 

In all your ways submit to him 

And he will make your paths straight. 

We submit ourselves to you as you have gathered us in worship, O God. Please help us to develop our trust in you. Let your will be our will.

Leader:            Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.

People:           Let us seek God’s will in all we do, and God will show us the paths to take.

People:           Wisdom is a tree of life to those who embrace her;

                        Happy are those who hold her tightly.

All:                  Let us worship God!

I was glad when they said to me,

“Let us go to the house of the Lord!”

Our feet are standing within your gates, O Jerusalem

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