Calls To Worship


Adapted from Psalm 1

Leader: Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers.

People: But whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night.

Leader: That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—

People: whatever they do prospers. So Lord we cry out for your help to obey all your ways.

Leader: Come Let us Worship the Lord!

Adapted from Psalm 1

Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked

Or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers,

But whose delight is in the law of the Lord,

And who meditates on God’s law day and night.

That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,

Which yields its fruit in seasons and whose leaf does not wither.

Whatever that person does prospers.

Holy God, help us to delight in following you. Renew our passion for your laws as we worship you today.

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.

Holy God, we are Your people, called by Your Name. We humble ourselves as we pray and seek Your face. God, help us to turn from our wicked ways. Please hear our cries to heaven and heal us from our sin that takes over like a disease. Forgive us for our failure to put You first, to rely on Your grace, and to trust in Your providence for our lives. May You hear our prayers of confession offered in this place so that You are forever glorified and we can live as a forgiven people. In the power of Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.
