Call to Worship: Revelation 7: 9-17

Here’s a call to worship litany based on Revelation 7: 9-17, one of the suggested texts for All Saints Day (November 1, 2011). It was written by Bruce Prewer.

Call to Worship
(based on Revelation 7: 9-17)

The joy of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
And also with you.

Today we give thanks to God for those special Christians whom we tend to see as the lesser saints,
and also for all souls who have departed this life in faith and love – many of whom remain especially dear to your hearts.

Thanks be to God, for those whom we have loved dearly but are out of our reach for a short while.

After this I saw a vast crowd, which no one could count; people from every nation, of all tribes, cultures and languages.

They were in their white baptismal robes, and had palms in their hands, and they shouted:
“The final victory belongs to God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”

They shall never again feel hunger or thirst, the sun shall not beat on them or any scorching heat, because the Lamb of God will be their Shepherd and will guide them to springs of the water of life; and God will wipe away all tears from their eyes.

 “Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom, thanksgiving and honour, power and might, be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!
