Call to Worship: 1 Samuel 2: 1-10

Here’s a call to worship based on Hannah’s prayer in 1 Samuel 2: 1-10.  It was written by Moira Laidlaw.

Call to Worship
(based on 1 Samuel 2:1-10)
There is no holy One, or no rock like our God
who causes my heart to rejoice and my strength to increase, 
For the Lord is a God of knowledge, who judges our actions. 
Who breaks the power of the mighty, and clothes the feeble with strength, 
The Lord makes rich and makes poor, brings low and lifts up. 
Raising up the poor from the dust and the needy from the ash heap; 
Giving them seats of honour and guarding the feet of those who are faithful. 
While the wicked and those who rebel against the Lord will be shattered. 
We worship and praise God—judge of all the earth.
