A Litany of Thanksgiving

O gracious and generous God, we give you thanks for the many blessings we have in our lives:

For the gift of life: We thank you, Lord. 

For your steadfast love: We thank you, Lord.

For this astonishing, complex planet and all you have created: We thank you, Lord.

For faith and the example of your saints: We thank you, Lord.

For the Church and our family in faith: We thank you Lord. 

For our families and friends: We thank you, Lord.

For health and for those who care for the sick: We thank you, Lord.

For food, warmth and shelter: We thank you, Lord.

For our nation, for freedom, security and peace: We thank you, Lord.

Lord, let us always be aware of your great kindness to us, your children. In gratitude for your gifts, may we: 

… respect all life

… care for creation

… tend the sick, the hungry, the homeless and the migrant

… work to create a just nation 

… love one another as you have loved us. 

Amen
