Call To Worship
One: We come to the One
who knows all the facts about our lives;
All: we are open books to God,
who writes on every page.
One: We approach the One
who knows what we are thinking;
All: our thoughts, our fears, our hopes
are all known by God.
One: We worship the One
who is always with us,
in front of us, behind us, around us;
All: what a wonderful God!
How blessed we are!

Prayer Of The Day
You we praise, Searching God,
for your presence surrounds us in every moment;
you reside in our hearts.
There is no cobwebbed corner
that is not claimed by your love.
The gate of heaven
is open to us in our moments of doubt,
as well as our moments of faith.
In our times of rest,
you whisper hope to us;
you awaken us, inviting us
to work in your kingdom.
Caller of our Hearts,
may we listen to your voice
and serve you with grace,
even as we pray as we have been taught, saying,

Our Father ...
