PSALM 149 – A Call to Worship
Praise the Source of life!
Sing to the Holy One a new song.
Praise the one we name God among the communion of saints.
Let the people of God rejoice in their creator.
Let them praise the Source of all that is with dance,
and celebrate with musical instruments,
because God delights in them,
and adorns the despairing with welfare.
Let all the saints jump for joy;
let them cry out with gladness where they rest.
Let high praises of Divine be in their throats:
word and song that overcome injustice,
binding rulers in chains and the powerful in iron shackles;
bringing justice to them, and honour to all God’s faithful.
Praise the Source of all that is!
whose steadfast love is more than life itself
and whose realm is forever,
we bring an offering;
our time, talent, and treasure.
With the siants in every age
we ask that your Spirit of grace
encourage us to use these gifts
to the glory of your name. Amen
THE PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE
(A prayer to gather the spoken and silent concerns/joys/thanks expressed by the congregation and lead into a more structured Intercession with connection to the lections for the day. Sometimes this prayer borrows lightly from other sources e.g. Uniting in Worship 2 or publications of the Iona Community.)
Holy and mysterious God,
Source of life;
receive our tiredness,
Be our consolation
and fill us again with hope.
Even as we pray for ourselves
be present to those we have named
on our lips and in our silence
and to those whose troubles are known only to you.
Loving God of all generations,
hear the cries of your world,
in Jesus’ name…
