Litany of Commitment: Isaiah 58: 1-9

Here’s a litany of response and commitment inspired by Isaiah 58: 1-9.  It comes from the Ministry Matters website.

 

Litany

(based on Isaiah 58:1-9)


God in Christ has shown us the beauty of holiness.
We come now to express our gratitude to God with our best gifts.
What are these gifts?
Our prayers, our praise, and the gifts of our hands.
These we should offer unto the Lord, but these are not all the Lord asks.
The Lord also asks that we break the yoke of tyranny
and let the oppressed go free.
We would do all that the Lord asks.

The Lord asks that we feed the hungry, clothe the naked,
and house the homeless.
We would do all that the Lord asks.

The Lord asks that we attend the afflicted
and give ourselves for those in need.
We would do all that the Lord asks.

Then our light shall rise at midnight and our gloom be as the noonday.
We will do all that the Lord asks.
