A Call to Worship based on the Beatitudes

A Call to Worship based on the Beatitudes

M:        This is a call to all those who are poor in spirit,
C:        for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

M:        This is a call to all those who mourn,
C:        for they will be comforted.

M:        This is a call to all those who are meek,
C:        for they will inherit the earth.

M:        This is a call to all those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
C:        for they will be filled.

M:        This is a call to all those who are the merciful,
C:        for they will be shown mercy.

M:        This is a call to all those who are the pure in heart,
C:        for they will see God.

M:        This is a call to all those who are the peacemakers,
C:        for they will be called sons of God.

M:        This is a call to all those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
C:        for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

M:        Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me (Jesus).
