A Call to Worship from Psalm 100


Here’s a call to worship based on Psalm 100.

Call to Worship
(based on Psalm 100)

Come before the Lord with joyful songs,
because he is good,
because he is generous,
because we lack nothing.
Let us enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise.

Serve the Lord with gladness,
because of his greatness and justice,
because he puts an end to war,
and to all forms of violence.
Let us enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise.

Come before the Lord with joy
because he is faithful to his promises,
because his Word is eternal.
Let us enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise.

Know that the Lord is God,
and we are his people,
his community, his family.
Let us enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise.

It is he who has made us to the praise of his name,
and therefore today, in the same spirit,
we have a festival to celebrate his peace.
Let us enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise.
