Opening Prayer: Teach Us Your Ways

Here’s a call to worship inspired by Psalm 122 and Isaiah 2:1-5. It was written by Moira Laidlaw.

Opening Prayer
(inspired by Psalm 122 and Isaiah 2:1-5)

I was overjoyed when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord!”
In faith, we gather to worship you, O God.
This is where you teach us your ways, that we may walk in your paths.
This is where we hear and act upon your word of peace and justice.
so that instruments of war are transformed into tools of production;
and nation shall not lift up arms against nation,
neither shall they learn war any more.
As we hear and obey, we shall surely walk in the light of the Lord!
