Responsive Call to Worship: Thank You!


Here’s a responsive call to worship litany (or opening prayer) for Thanksgiving.  It was written by Carol Penner and posted on her Leading in Worship blog.

Call to Worship Litany

The world is filled with the glory of God, and we say,
Thank you!
The hills and valleys are filled with colour, and we say,
Thank you!
The vines and trees are filled with fruit, and we say,
Thank you!
Our tables are overflowing with food, and we say,
Thank you!
Our life is filled with love of family and friends, and we say,
Thank you!
We fill this house of God with our voices, saying,
Thank you!
May the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts
be acceptable to you, O God,
as enter into this service of thanksgiving and praise.
