Call to Worship: Psalm 146

Here’s a contemporary call to worship inspired by Psalm 146.  It was written by Bruce Prewer.

Contemporary Call to Worship
(based on Psalm 146)

Now that you are here, in a house dedicated to the Most High,
pause and consider where your faith and hope are really fixed.
Do not put your trust in politicians,
not in any guru who is a human creature like you.
The breath of every human being will cease,
on that day all their mortal aspirations expire.

God’s realm will last forever, beyond all generations.
till earth and moon and stars are no more.
I will praise you alone, Lord of my souls!
I will praise you as long as live.
I will sing to you as long as I my soul has being.
