12th Sunday after Pentecost [Ordinary 20B] – Words for Worship (Year B)

Call to Worship (based on Ephesians 5:15-20)

Let us make the most of the time we have been given.

Fill us with the Spirit, O Lord!

Let us sing praises to our Creator!

We will give thanks to the Almighty now and at all times.

Praise the Lord!

Together, let us worship God!

Prayer of Confession (inspired by Psalm 111)

Generous God, you have blessed us with the whole of creation; but, we confess that we usually only praise you with half a heart.  You provide us with everything we need, and still we forget to say “thank you”.  Redeem us from our ungrateful habits, Holy God.  Open our hearts, unclench our spirits, and draw us closer to you.  Guide us in the ways of your wisdom, that we may sing your praises wholeheartedly.
