Call to Worship

We come full of praise for the wonderful works of God.
Even before we speak, God knows us completely.
The Holy One knows us and sustains us, even in our moments of confusion and doubt.
Who can count the thoughts of God? They are more than all the sands of the desert.
Like clay in the hand of the potter, we are shaped into vessels of divine will.
We come with praise for the wonderful works of God.


Endless shaper of people and nations, you are beyond our knowing, yet closer to us than our every breath.
You are before us and behind us, surrounding us with your love, and fashioning all of creation in the secret depths of your heart.
With every thought, with every song, and with every prayer, turn these fragile, earthen vessels of our lives,
into the Spirit-filled body of Christ. Amen.
