Call to Worship: Psalm 9

Here’s a responsive call to worship based on Psalm 9:9-20. It was written by L.G. Parkhurst.

Responsive Call to Worship
(based on Psalm 9:9-20)

The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed,
a stronghold in times of trouble.
Those who know your name put their trust in you,
for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.
Sing praises to the Lord, who dwells in Zion.
Declare his deeds among the peoples.
He does not forget the cry of the afflicted.
Be gracious to me, O Lord.
You are the one who lifts me up,
so that I may recount all your praises
and rejoice in your deliverance.
