This is a call to worship, which uses the full text of Psalm 93 along with part of Rev. 11, highlights God’s supreme rule over all through the Lordship of Jesus Christ. The last Sunday in the Christian year, known as “Christ our King Sunday” would be a great occasion for this call to worship. You might also consider using it on Sundays that coincide with major national political events, such as Independence Day or a presidential election. In that context, this call invites worshippers to recall that only God’s kingdom is eternal and only Jesus is Lord over all, forever.
Call to Worship: Based on Psalm 93, Rev. 11:15-18
The Lord rules! He is robed in majesty— the Lord is robed, clothed with strength.
Yes, he set the world firmly in place; it won’t be shaken. Your throne is set firm for a very long time. You are eternal!
Lord, the floods have raised up— the floods have raised up their voices; the floods raise up a roar!
But mightier than the sound of much water, mightier than the sea’s waves, mighty on high is the Lord! Your laws are so faithful. Holiness decorates your house, Lord, for all time.
The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and his Christ and he will rule forever and always.
We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, who is and was, for you have taken your great power and enforced your rule, in judgment and salvation.
(Together): So we worship you, Christ our King, for you alone are worthy.
