Opening Prayer Litany: Psalm 148


Here’s a combination call to worship/prayer of praise inspired by Psalm 148.  It was written by Joan Stott, and posted on The Timeless Psalms.

Prayer Litany
(based on Psalm 148)

We gather to praise you O God,
for all the things we can see, and sometimes understand:
the sun, moon and stars; the clouds and changing weather:
We join in their eternal chorus of praise to God.

We gather to praise you, O God,
for all the things that we cannot see or understand:
all heaven’s angels, outer space; and the skies above us;
We join in their eternal chorus of praise to God.

We gather to praise you O God,
for all the things in life that we experience:
the created world, people of all ages and circumstances,
all God’s creations.
We join in their eternal chorus of praise to God:
whose name is glorious, and whose ways are holy. Amen.
