*Call to Worship
On this morning, as every morning,
We are surrounded by God’s grace!
Come and listen to the words of life and love.
We hear and proclaim our faith in the One who brings life!
Let us worship the God of life and wisdom!
May His words guide our life onto the right paths! Amen
*W&S #3176 “Come, Now is the Time to Worship”
Loving and caring God, we come this morning seeking wisdom and guidance for our lives. Open us to Your words of life and love and truth. May we proclaim with our tongues what we know in our hearts. In this time of worship, help us more fully understand what it means to truly be a disciple, a follower of the way of Jesus, a follower of the path of wisdom. May the words of our mouths and the meditation of our hearts be acceptable to You, our Rock and our Redeemer. Amen.
