Call to Worship: Psalm 106: 1-6, 19-23


Here’s a call to worship based on Psalm 106:1-6, 19-23, one of the suggested scripture texts for October 9, 2011 (Proper 23A).  It was written by Moira Laidlaw, and posted on her Liturgies Online website. 

Call to Worship
(based on Psalm 106: 1-6, 19-23)

Let us praise God,
whose goodness and steadfast love are everlasting.
With joy we praise God’s wonderful deeds.
Happy are those who act justly
and whose lives reflect God’s righteousness at all times;
so look on us with favour, O God,
for we rejoice in all your faithful dealings
with those who have gone before us.
Like them, we have sinned;
we fall far short of your goodness.
Like them, we forget you
and replace you with idols of our own making.
Yet, as you heard Moses’ prayer for his people
and delivered them from certain death and destruction,
so you hear Jesus’ prayers for us,
and graciously grant us the gift of salvation.
Let us together praise God,
whose goodness and steadfast love are everlasting.
