Scripture                                                                                                                          Psalm 19


*Call to Worship

One:  The heavens declare the glory of God!    

All:  The skies proclaim God’s handiwork. 

One:  The day pronounces God’s glory without a sound, the night expounds God’s knowledge without a word, and yet their voice goes out through all the earth.

All:  Let us join our voices with the voice of creation in declaring God’s glory!

May your Spirit illumine Your words today so that our eyes may be opened and our souls revived. 

In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
