Call to Worship based on Psalm 80

You are the Gardner who plants us.

You dug deep into the soil.

And brought a vine out of Egypt.

As a Master gardener, you cleared the ground,

planted us deep in faith and tradition.

Our roots nourished by your love and grace.

Mountains were covered by our shade.

We sent branches out to every nation.

Today, we  stand weary.

Burned by fire.  Flooded by tears.  Devoured by despair. 

Revive us, O Lord,

Restore us, O Lord God of hosts.

Let your face shine, that we may be saved.

(C)2017 Worship’s Wake, Nathan Decker

“Hands” (Call to Worship) June 2014

Lord Almighty, it was your hands that worked that clay and made us.

Creator Hands.

                   Lord Jesus, it was your hands that were nailed to that ugly tree.

Savior Hands.

                   Lord Spirit, it is your hands that mold our hearts and renew our spirits.

Redeeming Hands.

God of hands, we don’t have much.

I give you my hands.

                   Take them, use them,

Use our hands to dig into the dirt and renew the garden.

                   Use our hands to heal the brokenness in the world.

Use our hands to wipe away tears.

                   God of hands, we don’t have much.

I give you my hands.
