CALL TO WORSHIP
Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,
that God may teach us holy ways;
Come, let us go to the house of God,
so we may walk in paths with our God.
The LORD will judge between the nations,
war will cease, rifle barrels will become garden stakes,
tanks will become tractors, and missile silos upcycled to hold grain;
All people will experience the Peace of the LORD, no one shall make them afraid;
For the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken.
HYMN “I’m going to live so God can use Me” #2153 UMH
Teach us, God of every nation,
To see every question of national policy in the light of our faith,
That we may check in ourselves and in others
Every passion that makes for war, all ungenerous judgement,
All promptings of self- assurance and presumptuous claims,
Grant us insight to recognize the needs and aspirations of other nations, and remove our suspicions and misunderstandings,
That we may honor all people in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING
Almighty God, Giver of every good and perfect gift,
Teach us to render to you all that we have and all that we are,
That we may praise you, not with our lips only,
But with our whole lives,
Turning the duties, the sorrows, and the joys of our days
Into a living sacrifice to you;
Through our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Lord in your Mercy
Hear our Prayer
Together, let us pray
for the people of this congregation...
for those who suffer and those in trouble...

for the world, its peoples, and its leaders...
for the earth you have given to our care…
for the Church universal—its leaders, its members, and its mission...
