Free Call to Worship: John 8:32

Our call to worship is from John 8:32

“If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples;
and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” John 8:32

God of heaven and earth,
we long to be truly free.
In this hour of worship,
help us to grasp the freedom that comes 
from seeing you more clearly,
loving you more dearly,
and following you more nearly.
Day by day, give us strength and courage
to be your people in this time, in this place.  Amen.

Call to Freedom Call to Worship

Psalm 102:18-22 and
God of grace,
we are a people gathered together in your name.
In your name we pray, we sing,
in your company we find peace.
Bless each person who has come today
with the knowledge that they are heard.
Help us to hear your call to freedom
ringing out over all the earth.  Amen.
