Prayer Litany for Thanksgiving

Prayer Litany for Thanksgiving
ALL SINGING:
All Creatures of Our God and King, verse 1
All creatures of our God and King
Lift up your voice and with us sing,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
O brother sun with golden beam,
O sister moon with silver gleam!
O praise ye! O praise ye!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

ONE
Let us give thanks to God,
Maker of Heaven and Earth,
For the blessings and gifts
so freely bestowed upon us

The instrumental music continues as each petition is shown on a screen for silent reflection and prayer. A printed version will suffice if no screen is available.

For the beauty and wonder
of your creation,
in earth and sky and sea.
Offer prayers of thanks and praise

For men and women,
boys and girls
who by their words and deeds,
reveal the image of Christ,
Offer prayers of thanks and praise

For our daily food and drink
Offer prayers of thanks and praise

For our homes,
For our families and friends,
Offer prayers of thanks and praise

For minds to think,
hearts to love,
hands to serve,
Offer prayers of thanks and praise

For health and strength to work,
For leisure to rest and play,
Offer prayers of thanks and praise

For all who work courageously
For truth, peace, and justice,
Offer prayers of thanks and praise

ONE:
Above all, let us give thanks
for the great promises and mercies
given to us and all the world
in Jesus Christ our Lord

Offer prayers of thanks and praise

ALL:
Alleluia!
Praise and glory be to Christ
With the Father and the Holy Spirit
Now and forever.

ALL SINGING:
All Creatures of Our God and King, verse 7
Let all things their Creator bless,
And worship Him in humbleness,
O praise ye! Alleluia!
Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son,
And praise the Spirit, Three in One!
O praise ye! O praise ye!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son,
And praise the Spirit, Three in One!
O praise ye! O praise ye!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
