A Baccalaureate Call To Worship: We Choose To Listen To Your Voice

The following is a Call To Worship I wrote for our town’s Baccalaureate Service – the formal faith gathering that optionally accompanies high school graduation ceremonies in an area.

CALL TO WORSHIP
Dan Wilt

Call: Many voices are speaking to us today in the movie theaters, on the concert stages, on the television.

Response: Today, Lord, we choose to listen to Your voice, to respond to Your desires, to follow Your highest path for us.

Call: Many voices are speaking to us today in our homes, in our friendships, and in our community.

Response: Today, Lord, we choose to listen to Your voice, to respond to Your desires, to follow Your highest path for us.

Call: Many voices are speaking to us today through celebrities, commercials and through media.

Response: Today, Lord, we choose to listen to Your voice, to respond to Your desires, to follow Your highest path for us.

All: As many voices ring in our ears, we say that we choose to listen for Your voice, to do what pleases you, and to stay true to the path You have lovingly set before us. Strengthen each of us to choose the high road, to live up to the greatness you placed within us, and to honor You in all our ways. Lord, we will listen for Your voice. Amen.

Sheltering Mercy helps us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. This book contains 75 prayers drawn from Psalms 1-75, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning in the Psalms. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

This artful, poetic, and classic devotional book features compelling custom illustrations and foil-stamped hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms. Co-written with Ryan Whitaker Smith, Brazos Publishing.
