The Call
God calls us and despite all that has happened this week,
    O God, we are here.
We did not stay on track, we missed the mark more than once but
    O God, we are here.
We missed opportunities to trust you and tried to handle things ourselves but
    O God, we are here.
We fell off the wagon again this week and yet
    O God, we are here!
Our faith may feel stagnant and blasé but
    O God, we are here.
We are here.What we need is here.
    O God, we are ready to receive all that you would give.

Call to Worship for Lent 5 A

Call to Worship for Lent 5 Year A based on John 11:1-45, the raising of Lazarus.

The Call

We come together and cry out to God:

    We are sick, we are hurting, we are dying, Lord! Come quick!
Jesus says, “The illness isn’t fatal. I will be glorified through it.”
    But we are in such pain, we can’t go on! Where are you, Lord?
We are in the darkest place, the stench of death surrounds us. We are done.
    “If you had only been here sooner, Lord!”
Jesus weeps and says, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me will live, even though they die. Do you believe this?”
    Yes, Lord, we believe! Show us! Work miracles out of our greatest tragedies!
