Opening Litany based on Psalm 90

Worship Leader: God, it seems you’ve been our home long before the mountains were even born, before you brought earth itself into being.  Since before time and past the end of eternity, You are God! 

Congregation: Remember who you have called us to be and don’t send us back, dust to dust.  You are the God of time itself, deal with us patiently. 

Worship Leader: We get it.  Compared to what we are called to be, created in your image, we have not amounted to much more than a blade of grass.

Congregation: Your anger and expectations are far and away too much for us.  Sometimes we feel we are at the end of our rope. I’m sure you feel the same.

Worship Leader: Yet, I also remember more than just the frown on your face.

Congregation: Though, through the span of our years, we may disappoint and fall short of what you have called us to be, there is more to you than anger.  You are after all the essence of love.

Worship Leader: Teach us to live wisely and well. We long for your return, fearing not judgment, but the calling of your grace.

Congregation: when we see your love, we will skip and dance all the day long.

Worship Leader: Let your servants see what you’re best at— the ways you rule and bless your children.

Congregation: And let the loveliness of our Lord, our God, rest on us, confirming the work that we do.
