Intergenerational Litany: We're Ready!

Here’s an intergenerational litany inspired by Matthew 24: 36-44.  It comes from the Liturgy Center website.

Litany: Matthew 24:36-44

Jesus said to his disciples ...
Be ready!
Whatever you are doing ...
Be ready!
You could be eating or drinking, just ...
Be ready!
Be ready to do what God wants, just ...
Be ready!
Like Noah was! God told Noah to ...
Be ready!
You never know what might happen, so ...
Be ready!
Be ready to do what God wants, just ...
Be ready!

Be ready to help others. Are you ready?
We’re ready!
Be ready to forgive. Are you ready?
We’re ready!
Be ready to be kind and friendly. Are you ready?
We’re ready!
Be ready to think about others. Are you ready?
We’re ready!
Be ready to say you are sorry to those you hurt.

Are you ready?
We’re ready!
Be ready to accept people. Are you ready?
We’re ready!
Be ready to do what God wants …
We’re ready!
