CALL TO WORSHIP [from GREATER ATTENTION: LERW, YEAR D]
The LORD has promised, saying: “Raise your eyes now,
and look to the north, the south, the east, and the west …”
You are great, O LORD our God; for there is no one like you;
there is no God besides you, according to all that we have heard!
“For all the land that you see
I will give to you and to your offspring forever.
I will make your offspring like the dust of the earth.”
Now, LORD God, as for the word that you have spoken,
confirm it forever; do as you have promised!
“If one can count the dust of the earth,
your offspring also can be counted.
Rise up, walk through the length and the breadth of the land,
for I will give it to you.”
Thus your name will be magnified forever!
For you are God, and your words are true!
