Thanksgiving Litany: Reflections on Psalm 96


Here’s a litany of thanksgiving inspired by Psalm 96.  It was written by Erika Kobewka.

Litany of Thanksgiving
(inspired by Psalm 96)

Today we offer our thanksgiving and gratitude
to the Giver of all good and perfect gifts, 
The Lord be praised. 
For the tables we share
and the bread we partake of within our communities, within our families,
and within our homes, 
The Lord be praised. 
For the hands of friendship that have been extended to us
and the grace we have received, 
The Lord be praised. 
For Your continual provision in our lives, 
The Lord be praised. 
For the embrace of love, 
The Lord be praised. 
For Your mercies that are new at dawn and sustain us through the day,
echoing through the night, 
The Lord be praised. 
For the gift of Your Son and His blood poured out.
The Lord be praised. 
For the new life that beats within us now. 
The Lord be praised. 
In all things, we give You thanks and join with creation's song, 
Great is the Lord and most worthy to be praised!
