CALL TO WORSHIP
Psalm 27:1, 4-8
“Triumphant Song of Confidence”
Leader: The LORD is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid?
People: One thing I asked of the LORD,
that will I seek after:
to live in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life,
to behold the beauty of the LORD,
and to inquire in his temple.
Leader: For he will hide me in his shelter
in the day of trouble;
he will conceal me under the cover of his tent;
he will set me high on a rock.
People: Now my head is lifted up
above my enemies all around me,
and I will offer in his tent
sacrifices with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make melody to the LORD.
Leader: Hear, O LORD, when I cry aloud,
be gracious to me and answer me!
People: “Come,” my heart says, “seek his face!”
Your face, LORD, do I seek.

Holy God, in this season that commemorates the life and
ministry of Jesus, remind us that his ministry is always and
ever actively reaching out toward us. And in this hour of
worship, help us to be open to the challenges of his words,
the power of his healing, and the opportunity to labor
alongside him as both Savior and friend. In his holy name.
