Calls To Worship


Adapted from Psalm 20:6-7

Now this I know: 

The Lord gives victory to his anointed. 

He answers from his heavenly sanctuary 

With the victorious power of his right hand. 

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, 

But we trust in the name of the Lord our God. 

God, we proclaim our faith in you as we worship you today.

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 29

Leader: Ascribe to the Lord, O Heavenly Beings, ascribe the Lord glory and strength.

People: Ascribe to the Lord the glory of his name; worship the Lord in holy splendor. 

Leader: The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord, over mighty waters.

People: The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty. 

All: May the Lord give strength to his people! May the Lord bless his people with peace!

Adapted from Psalm 84: 1, 2, 4, 5

Leader: How lovely is your dwelling place,

O Lord Almighty!

People: My soul yearns, even faints,

for the courts of the Lord;

My heart and flesh cry out

for the living God.

Leader: Blessed are those who dwell in your house

They are ever praising you.

People: Blessed are those whose strength is in you,

Who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.

Bud Thoreen

Adapted from Isaiah 40

Leader: Have you not known? Have you not heard?

The Lord is the everlasting God,

the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He does not faint or grow weary;

his understanding is unsearchable.

People: He gives power to the faint,

and strengthens the powerless.

Even youths will faint and be weary,

and the young will fall exhausted;

but those who wait for the Lord

shall renew their strength.

Leader: What happens when we wait for the Lord?

People: We shall renew our strength.

We shall mount up with wings like eagles,

we shall run and not be weary,

we shall walk and not faint.

Adapted from Isaiah 40:28-31

Do you not know? Have you not heard?

The Lord is the everlasting God, the creator of the ends of the earth. 

He will not grow tired or weary.

And his understanding no one can fathom.

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.

Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall.

But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles; 

They will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

So let us praise God together today.

Adapted from Luke 1:44b-55, the Magnificat

Come, let us magnify the Lord, let us rejoice in God, our Savior. His mercy is for those who fear him from generation to generation.

He has shown strength with his arm. He has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts; he has brought down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted those of humble state.

He has filled the hungry with good things and sent the rich away empty. He has helped his servant Israel in remembrance of his mercy, as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and his offspring forever.

Let us magnify the Lord.

Adapted from Acts 1:8

Jesus said, “And you will receive power, 

When the Holy Spirit Comes on you. 

And you will be my witnesses. 

In Jerusalem, and all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” 

Holy Spirit, in your power, come to us today.
