Call to Worship: Ephesians 5: 20

Here’s a contemporary call to worship inspired by Ephesians 5:20.  It was written by Thom Shuman.

Contemporary Call to Worship
(based on Ephesians 5:20)

Thank God at all times for everything,
in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Eph. 5:20 (Phillips)

Give thanks to God!
We thank God for joy, for laughter,
for abundant blessings of every kind.

Give thanks to God
at all times and for everything!
We thank God, when we can and as we can,
for struggles, for solitude, for fears.

Give thanks to God
at all times and for everything
in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We thank God that, in Christ,
our joys as well as our pain,
our losses as well as our laughter,
are in God's heart and hands.
