Calls to Worship
Come let us sing unto the
Lord: Let us make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the lands. Let us serve
the Lord with gladness and came into his presence with singing.
Blessed is the spot, and the house, and the place, and the city, and the
heart, and the mountain, and the refuge, and the cave, and the valley,
and the land, and the sea, and the island, and the meadow where mention
of God hath been made and His praise glorified.
--From the Baha'i Writings
O Great Spirit! Watch over us as we begin this day. Protect us as we live
in your care. Give us bounty and hold us from harm. We are your children
and wish only to please you. We hold our Mother Earth close to our hearts
and wish her goodness. We thank You for your love.
A PSALM FOR THE THANK OFFERING
From the Book of Psalms,
Make a joyful noise to
the Lord, all the lands!
Serve the Lord with gladness!
Come into His presence with singing!
Know that the Lord is GOD!
It is He that made us, and we are His;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And His courts with praise!
Give thanks to Him; bless His name!
For the Lord is good;
His steadfast love endures for ever,
And His faithfulness to all generations.
