Advent Call to Worship
(inspired by Luke 1:68-79)

Lift up your hearts, people of God,                                                              
for the Lord has looked favorably upon us
and is sending us his beloved son.
He is raising up for us a mighty savior
in the house of his servant David.

God is showing the mercy promised to our ancestors,
and has remembered his holy covenant,
the oath he swore to our ancestors Abraham and Sarah,
that we might serve him without fear.
We go before the Lord, following John the Baptist,
to prepare the way of the Lord.

Come, let us worship God
and listen to the voice crying out in the wilderness.
