Call to Worship: 1 Kings 8: 22-30

Here’s a call to worship litany based on Solomon’s prayer of dedication for the Temple in 1 Kings 8.  It was written by Bruce Prewer.

(based on 1 Kings 8: 22-30)

Will you, God, live on this small planet earth?
Look! Heaven and earth cannot contain You,
much less this house of prayer
which we have built and cherished.
    Raise the stone and you shall find me,
    cleave the wood and I am there.

There is no god like you, God of Jesus,
neither on earth nor elsewhere in the whole universe!
A God who keeps every promise
and shows unswerving love to your servants
who with all their hearts walk in your ways.
    Blessed are you, our Creator and Redeemer,
    in whom we live and move and have our being
