Presbyterian call to worship
Heavenly Father, your will reigns in our lives everlasting. Were it not for You, O great seeker of our souls, patient parent to our childhood, joyful host to our homecoming; Were it not for You, O Lord, we would be lost forever. Thank You God. All of heaven sings of your glory. Bring the wonder of your strength and power as you visit us today. Forgive us our lack of attention to Your Word, our failure to seek and find what we need from the source of all our joy. Fill us with your presence and let us be lost in the euphoria of your presence. We come today to give our hearts, minds, souls and all our energy in adoration to God. The water that I will give them will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life. Let us worship God.
O Holy God, like Isaiah the prophet, we stand in awe of Your glory, feeling tremendously small and polluted by our sin, and the sin of our society. In Christ we pray. Eternal God, we open our minds and hearts to You this hour.
And let us worship God. We are called to serve in your name.
Writing a call to worship prayer
We're never really sure of how You are able to be all these things to us, but You are. We gather to exalt you again, which is the reason why you created us. We bless you for giving us the grace and good health to gather here in your nae. Ecclesiastes Let Your waters "break forth in our wilderness, Your streams in our desert. O God, our refuge, our strength, our help; You are the bedrock upon which our lives are built, the mighty fortress which surrounds and protects. Oh, Lord, we come to you asking for forgiveness. By faith we stand and worship. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Lead us by your Spirit to praise you. Bring us closer in unity to your love and grace. For we pray focused upon the One who died for all, Your only begotten son. With the Psalmist our hearts cry out, our spirits pant, and we will not be silenced in our search for God. Come into our midst, God, and have fellowship with us.
In You we find freedom from the tyranny of time. The invitation to confidently approach God and receive mercy and grace is what sets Christianity apart in the pantheon of world religions.
One more thing, Lord, stir us up, so that we don't become too self-satisfied, and forget to keep asking, and seeking, and knocking.
Call to worship scriptures
If you are reading a call to worship avoid the reading voice with its downturned towns and predictable rhythms. Rest for your souls: Matthew 11 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. We are surrounded with Your goodness and mercy, if only we have eyes to see, ears to hear, hands to touch, and hearts to confess them. With the tender arms of Your Spirit, embrace us. That God, who is holy, desires wholeness and joy for all people. They need the inspired Word of God prompting their hearts to properly respond to the Savior who has already called them by grace to worship His name! But we cannot attend to them without You But, because of You, there is room for us at the great Love Feast. Forgive us for doubting when we have not seen Your hand at work, believing that You are too distant to care or too weak to act. May we be guided by your light and mercy forever. When we lose sight of this, today as well as every day, O Lord, forgive us, and live in and through us. Holy Spirit, teach us this day more about Your truth, as revealed by Jesus Christ.
And so Lord, we arise to worship. Heavenly Father, your will reigns in our lives everlasting. Our own, individual names separate us from one another and, more importantly, from You. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray.
Catherine of Siena, 14th c.
