A Call to Worship: Psalm 138

Here’s a call to worship based on Psalm 138.  It was written by Joan Stott.

Call to Worship
(based on Psalm 138)

O Lord our God, we come together with songs of praise in our hearts,
because of your unfailing love and faithfulness.
Even though we struggle with life’s issues, your mercy blesses us.

Listening God, we come together with prayers of thanks in our hearts,
because you hear and answer our prayers.
Even though life is sometimes difficult, your strength blesses us.

Welcoming God, we come together in reverent worship filling our minds,
because your faithful love endures forever.
Even though we are fragile people
who sometimes feel lost and abandoned,
God’s love blesses us and never changes.
Thanks and praise be to our glorious God for ever and ever.  Amen.
