A THANK YOU GOD LITANY
By Uriah J. Fields
                            <<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>
O gracious and Holy God, in your presence and with thankful hearts we
offer to You this Sacrament of gratitude:
We acknowledge You as the giver of all good things and the bestower
of our manifold blessings:
We are aware that Your goodness is great and our blessings are
too many for us to enumerate one-by-one.
Yet, O God in this prayer of thanksgiving, at this particular time,
we want to thank You for some specific gifts You have showered
upon us:
We begin with life, our lives, we are still among the living, The
health and strength that we possess, The food, clothing, shelter
and safety we enjoy today and have enjoyed in days gone by.
For all these we joyfully proclaim, not just with our
mouths but with our lives, Thank You God.
We are  mindful of the  compassion  we  have  known, Our
mother's tender-loving care expressed in more ways than we
can say, The strength  and  protective  eyes of our fathers,
The knowledge and wisdom we have received from teachers
in schools and beyond the school walls, The ministers and
spiritual leaders who proclaimed good news to us and by their
examples let us know how to be responsible and live righteous
lives, Our playmates  who  helped us to  know the beauty of
laughter and how to be spontaneous; The moving stories we
have heard, sometimes  sad  but  mostly  happy ones, that
helped us to  better know  the  storytellers  and understand
ourselves; Those from many walks o f life who revealed to
us the power of faith, hope, love and prayer, The tears we
have shed, both  tears of  joy and  tears of sorrow; For the
suffering that has empowered us in ways that only suffering
can, making us strong and  able to  endure life's challenges.
For all these we joyfully proclaim, not just with our
mouths but with our lives, Thank You God;
We have confidence and  assurance  that You who  have
brought us this far is not going to leave us now or as long
an we exercise faith and hold fast the gift of salvation.
We know Who You are and Whose we are; You are our
Father;  In your presence we will abide and with eternal
hope claim victory.
For all these we joyfully proclaim, not just with our
mouths but with our lives,  Thank You God.
And so it is. Amen.
