Wholly Yours Call to Worship

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
the whole earth is full of his glory. [Isaiah 6:3 NRSV]
The Lord of hosts is with us.
Let us lift up our hearts!

We lift them up to the Lord!
Let us give thanks to the Lord our God!

It is a good and joyful thing to give God thanks and praise!
Let us pray:

Holy God,
we come together as your people
searching for sacred space,
longing to be cherished,
craving a real connection.
In this hour of worship
let thankfulness sink deep
and joy spring up.
We lift our hearts and souls and minds
to the God of our creation,
for we are wholly yours
now and forever. Amen.
