Psalm 107 Litany

Here’s a responsive litany inspired by Psalm 107.  It comes from Kristin Holbrook.

Litany
(inspired by Psalm 107)

O give thanks to the LORD, for the LORD is good;
God’s steadfast love endures forever.
Let the redeemed of the LORD say so.
God has redeemed us from trouble.
Some wandered in the desert,
Dying of hunger and thirst.
They cried out to the LORD;
The LORD heard them and delivered them from distress!
Some sat as prisoners,
In darkness, loneliness, isolation, and gloom.
They cried out to the LORD;
The LORD heard them and delivered them from distress!
Some are sick, with malaria and AIDS,
Burdened by disease that brings stigma and isolation.
They cried out to the LORD;
The LORD heard them and delivered them from distress!
Some are left to raise and tend siblings,
Orphaned by disease and matured by hardship.
They cried out to the LORD;
The LORD heard them and delivered them from distress!
Some are children of the street,
Left alone to violence, to drugs, to gangs.
They cried out to the LORD;
The LORD heard them and delivered them from distress!
Let those who are wise give heed to these things.
God’s steadfast love endures forever!
