Call to Worship: John 3


Here’s an opening for worship (and brief prayer of invocation) inspired by the events of John 3:1-21, where Nicodemus encounters Jesus. It was written by Tim Graves and posted on LiturgyBits.

Call to Worship

(inspired by John 3:1-21)

It had been a long day.
The heat.
The crowds.
The life as it is expected.

He sensed something new with this man.
A breath,
a wind swirled and blew.

They met as the noise of the day faded.
A patient breath taught a perceiving heart.

“So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

Open our hearts
to the wind sweeping through this room.
Open our whole selves to your abundant love. Amen.
