Worship Pieces: Call to Worship & Offertory Prayer

This call to worship is based on Jeremiah 1:4-10, with a touch of Psalm 71 thrown in for good measure.

The word of God comes to us:
Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.”
The word of God comes to us:
I appointed you to speak my word.”
We may believe we are too young, or too old,
too tall or too short,
too loud or too quiet,
too ignorant or too cynical.
Still, the word of God comes to us.
Still, we have come here, to worship,
where we can listen more closely
so we can speak more faithfully.
May our mouths by filled with God’s praise, and with God’s glory all day long.

 

And the offertory prayer we are using for our worship series on God’s faithfulness:

Holy One, as you are faithful to us, may we be faithful to you:
Faithful with our time and energy;
faithful with our possessions and wealth.
Receive these gifts by your grace.
Multiply and use them through the power of the Holy Spirit
to make real your reign of love, justice, and peace in our world. Amen.
