A Thanksgiving Litany

October 13, 2011

We praise and thank you, our God, the Creator who made us, the Christ who saved us, and the Counsellor who guides us.

We praise and thank you, our God, for all that we have been given – for earth and oceans, rain and sun, for food and homes; for the blessings of life and faith and hope; for family and friends, for neighbours and coworkers.

We praise and thank you, our God, for you have blessed us beyond all our hopes and dreams.

We praise and thank you, our God, for all blessings which compel us to reach out to those with less, to be of service to any in need, to keep company with the unwelcome, to seek peace and make friends of our enemies.

And so, our God, with hearts full of praise and thanksgiving, we offer ourselves – all that we are, and all that we have – afresh to you today. Lord God, you have enriched us, saved us, loved us. Open our hearts and minds to your will that we may be free to share everything we have, to give away whatever holds us hostage in spirit, that we may always know that possessions are just that: things, lovely to have, but in the end only good for the good they can do in this world. Keep us always in that work, the work of our Lord Jesus Christ to spread your reign and rule. In Jesus’ Name we pray. Amen.
