Calls To Worship

Power

Adapted From Psalm 24

Lift up your heads, O you gates;

be lifted up, you ancient doors,

that the King of glory may come in.

Who is this King of glory?

The LORD strong and mighty,

the LORD mighty in battle.

Lift up your heads, O you gates;

lift them up, you ancient doors,

that the King of glory may come in.


Adapted from Psalm 71

Leader: I come praising the mighty deeds of the Lord God, I will praise Your righteousness, Yours alone.

People: O God, from my youth You have taught me, and I still proclaim Your wondrous deeds. So even to old age and gray hairs, O God, do not forsake me, until I proclaim Your might to all the generations to come. Your power and Your righteousness, O God, reach the high heavens. You who have done great things, O God, who is like You? My lips will shout for joy when I sing praises to You; my soul also, which You have rescued. 

Leader: O God, who is like You? Let our lips shout for joy, let us sing our praises to You.


Adapted from Psalm 147

Leader: How good it is to sing praises to our God!

People: Great are You, Lord and mighty in power. You understand everything about each one of us. You heal the brokenhearted and bind up our wounds. You sustain the humble and delight in those who hold You in awe and put their hope in Your endless love.

Leader: Blessed are those who rely on God, who hope in God alone,

People: You uphold the cause of the oppressed and give food to the hungry. You set prisoners free, You give sight to the blind. You lift up those who are bowed down and broken. You watch over the ones who are new among us and sustain the fatherless and the widow.

Leader: Lord, show us this morning Your sufficiency, Your abundance, Your outstretched arms and our deep need to be infused and enthused with your Holy Spirit.

People: Great are You, Lord and mighty in power. You understand everything about each one of us. You heal the brokenhearted and bind up our wounds. You sustain the humble and delight in those who hold You in awe and put their hope in Your endless love.

Leader: Blessed are those who rely on God, who hope in God alone,

People: You uphold the cause of the oppressed and give food to the hungry. You set prisoners free, You give sight to the blind. You lift up those who are bowed down and broken. You watch over the ones who are new among us and sustain the fatherless and the widow.

Leader: Lord, show us this morning Your sufficiency, Your abundance, Your outstretched arms and our deep need to be infused and enthused with your Holy Spirit.


We proclaim the message of the cross: 

This is the wisdom and power of God. 

For God alone my soul waits in silence. 

Steadfast love belongs to the Lord. 

Jesus said: The Spirit of the Lord is upon me. 

May the word of God be fulfilled among us.
