Litany and Prayer, Thanksgiving, Year A

Call to Worship and Prayer for Thanksgiving, Year A:

One: The earth belongs to God, and all that is in it,
All: The world is indeed God’s, and all of us who live in it.
One: God supplies seed to the sower and bread for food,
All: And God multiplies the seed and increases the harvest.
One: Out of our abundance, God requires that we share,
All: That all may have enough. Thanks be to God for such an indescribable gift!
              From 2 Corinthians 9:6-15

The Lord be with you.
And also with you.
Let us pray:
Creator God,
You are amazing! Even with our small gifts you are able to do wonderful things! We hear our world suffering from violence and tragedy, and you guide our hands to do your work of caring for others. We see people each day without homes, without food, without basic necessities, and you guide our hearts to feed those who are hungry. We feel helpless in the face of great needs, and you guide our minds to study and be forever watchful for ways to better serve our world. Make us whole so that our hands and hearts and minds might work together to your glory. Amen.
