Prayer of Thanksgiving - A Litany
For the beauty and wonder of your creation, in earth and sky and sea: We thank you, Lord.
For our daily food and drink, our homes and families, and our friends: We thank you, Lord.
For this health and strength to work, and leisure to rest and play: We thank you, Lord.
For the brave and courageous, who are patient in suffering and faithful in adversity: We thank you, Lord.
For though we were once alienated and hostile in our minds, doing evil deeds, nevertheless your Son has now reconciled us to yourself in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present us holy and blameless and above reproach before you: We thank you, Lord.
For the communion of saints, the fellowship of the faithful who have gone before us and those who walk with us now: We thank you, Lord.
Above all, we give you thanks for the great mercies and promises given to us in Christ Jesus our Lord, that in him all of your promises to us are “Yes” and “Amen” (2 Corinthians 1.20); to you be praise, glory and thanksgiving, O Father, Son and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.
