Opening Prayer / Call to Worship
(inspired by Psalm 1)

King of all the earth,
Creator of the universe,
Holy Triune God,
From everlasting to everlasting, you are Lord.
Your law brings life, O Lord, and we meditate on it day and night;
Happy are we when we walk in your ways, O Lord.
You are a rich stream of living waters, and we would immerse ourselves in you;
Happy are we when we walk in your ways, O Lord.
You bring forth fruit in due season and establish the work of our hands;
Happy are we when we walk in your ways, O Lord.
Who is like our God, the One whose ways are full of life?
Happy are we when we walk in your ways, O Lord.

This is our God, the Holy One.  
Come before him with thanksgiving
and offer him the sacrifice of praise.
