Contemporary Call to Worship: Psalm 122

Here’s a call to worship inspired by Psalm 122.  It comes from the Main Street Congregational Church website.

Call to Worship
(inspired by Psalm 122)

We were glad when they said,
“Let us go to the house of God!”
Our feet are standing within your gates, O Holy City!
We pray for the peace of all God’s beloved cities:
“May they prosper who love you.
Peace be within your walls
and security within your towers.”
For the sake of friend and stranger we say:
Peace be within you, O Jerusalem!
Peace be within you,  O New York, O Washington, O Shanksville!
Peace be within you, O Kabul!
Peace be within this community!
For the sake of the house of the Holy One, our God,
we will seek your good.
Let us worship the living God, tender and just!
