Here’s a call to worship and opening prayer based on John 6:35.  They were written by Moira Laidlaw.

Call to Worship
Jesus said “I am the bread of life.
Whoever comes to me will never be hungry
and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”  (John 6:35)

Opening Prayer

We praise you, O God,
for the meaning that you give to our lives in and through Jesus.
He is the sign of your deep and everlasting love for the world
and we rejoice in his promise to sustain us with his life.
We praise you for filling our emptiness with his goodness.
May our worship and praise express our thanks, O God,
for your gift to us of the true bread from heaven—
Jesus Christ, your Son, our living Lord. Amen
