Call to Worship, Prayer: John 6: 35

Here’s a call to worship and opening prayer based on John 6:35.  It was written by Bruce Prewer.

Call to Worship
(inspired by John 6:35)

If you arrive here hungry for more of that divine bread which feeds your soul,
then I welcome you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I, your minister, may sometimes disappoint you, but he will not.
His grace is sufficient for all your needs.

Jesus says: “I am the bread of life.
Those who come to me shall not hunger,
and those who believe in me shall never thirst.”

Opening Prayer: Feed Us Now
(inspired by John 6)

Feed us now, Child of God, as you fed your first disciples.

Feed us with that soul-food which nurtures enough love within us
to outstrip the fears and enmity that ties the world up in knots.

Feed us with that spiritual bread which strengthens our hands
for serving those broken and lost people whom this world deems a waste of space.

Feed us, so that we may be fulfilled with some of that joy
which the universe cannot contain.
For your love’s sake.
