Litany of Approach: Epiphany 5B

Here’s an opening prayer litany based on the scripture texts for February 5, 2012 (the fifth Sunday after Epiphany). It comes from Richard Fairchild’s Kir-shalom website.

Prayer Litany
(based on Psalm 147, Isaiah 40:21-31, Mark 1:29-39)

Lord God, through Jesus you opened the eyes of the blind;
you healed the sick and you fed the hungry.
We give you thanks and praise for your mercy and your love.
Loving Father, by the Spirit you restore strength to the weary
and give hope to those who are in despair.
We give you thanks and praise for your mercy and your love.
You call us Lord to proclaim your deeds and your wonders to all people,
You call us to worship and serve you that all may be made whole. 
You offer us a new life of righteousness.
We give you thanks and praise for your mercy and your love.
Make us worthy, O Lord, to receive all your gifts. 
Descend on us like the light of a new day
give light to our souls
and put your praise upon our lips.  Amen.
