2nd Sunday in Lent – Words for Worship (Year B)

Call to Worship (based on Psalm 22)

Leader:  Praise the Lord, all you who worship the Holy One!

People:  You children of Jacob, glorify God!  You children of Israel, stand in awe of the Lord of Hosts!

Leader:  All those who hunger are fed in abundance at the Lord’s table.

People:  All who seek the Lord, sing praises and worship the God of glory!

Prayer of Confession (inspired by Mark 8:31-38; refers to Psalm 17:1)

El-Shaddai – God Almighty – we have failed to serve you faithfully.  Our lives are anything but blameless.  You invite us to see with a new vision, but we continue in our old ways.  You call us to set aside our own desires so that we may embrace your desires, but we are stubborn and refuse to let go.  Lord, rebuke our shameful ways.  Guide us to find our place, directly behind Christ.  Teach us to take up our crosses and follow wherever you lead, we pray.
