Call to Worship

Jean Garling, Leader

One:            Incline your ear, O Lord, and answer me. You are my God.

Many:       Be gracious to me, O Lord, for to you do I cry all
                    day long

One:           Gladden the soul of your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift
                   up my soul

Many:        All the nations you have made shall come and
                     bow down before you, O Lord, and shall glorify
                    your name. For you are great and do wondrous things; you alone are God.

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
