Call to Worship: Romans 8:26-27

Call to Worship
(based on Romans 8:26-27, The Message)

We’ve gathered together in the presence of God
to offer our praise and our prayers.
We come before God with confidence,
knowing that even when we can’t find the words,
God’s own Spirit is right here with us,
praying in us and for us,
giving shape to our wordless hopes and longings,
and pleading for us before the throne of grace.
So let’s come with joy to offer our worship
to God who knows and loves us all.
