Here is the call to worship we will use this week to go along with Matthew 18:15-20.
Call to Worship
(from: Ecclesiastes 4:9-12; Mark 6:7; Matthew 18:20; Acts 2:46; Hebrews 10: 24-25)
As we gather together to worship, let us remember the words of Scripture:
Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil.
Jesus sent his disciples out two by two and gave them authority over evil spirits.
For with two, if you fall, someone is there to help you up.
Jesus says, “Where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.”
Also, if two lie down together, they can keep warm.
Every day the believers continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts.
Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.
Let us consider how we may spur each other on toward love and good deeds.
A threefold cord is not quickly broken.
So let us not give up meeting together, but let us encourage one another.
Let us worship God together.
And as a bonus, here is a prayer that my 7-year-old daughter wrote yesterday. She said I could share it, “if you think people will like it.”
May gladness and joy come to us by you.
May your powers be made in us.
May you always be near us.
May your gladness also be ours.
