Here’s an opening litany from Pastor Dan’s Grace Notes blog.
Litany 2 3
There are times when we seem almost blind
to the blessings that surround us.
In the midst of our fear, our pain, our complacency,
we either don’t see or don’t care about
the Lord’s presence in our lives.
But then something happens,
the scales fall from our eyes
and we see what has been there all along.
The LORD is our shepherd,
we shall not be in want
for the Lord makes us lie down in green pastures,
and leads me beside quiet waters.
The Lord restores our souls
and guides us in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for the Lord is with me;
the Lord’s guidance comforts me.
For the Lord prepares a table before us
in the presence of those who would harm us.
The Lord provides us with all we need
and our cup of blessing overflows.
Surely goodness and love will follow us all the days of our lives,
And we will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
