Here’s a call to worship and opening prayer for the 3rd Sunday of Lent, Year C. It was written by Bruce Prewer.
Call to Worship
(inspired by Isaiah 55:1-3, Psalm 63: 1-8)
Let us prepare to worship God.
Hear this, every one who thirsts, come to the waters
and you who have no money, come, procure and eat!
Wonderful God, you are our God, early will we seek you.
Our spirits thirst for you, our minds long for you
Because your love is better than life itself,
our lips will sing your praise!
Prayer of Approach
Holy Friend, lover of us all,
assist us to worship you with unfeigned sincerity.
Thrust aside anything counterfeit in us,
and overcome any fears that we may inhibit us.
Help us to trust your hospitality
and to worship you as children who are warmly loved and treasured.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
