CALL TO WORSHIP from Psalm 122

People: Our feet are standing in your gates, O Jerusalem.
Leader: Jerusalem is built like a city that is closely compacted together.
People: That is where the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord,
            To praise the name of the Lord.
Leader:  Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
People:  “May those who love you be secure.
              May there be peace within your walls
              And security within your citadels.”

            We will seek your prosperity.
