May it be your will, Holy One, to establish the house of our life, and to restore your Divine Presence to our midst, speedily in our days; and let us say amen.
May it be your will, Holy One, to have mercy upon us and upon our community, and to keep destruction and suffering from us and from all your people; and let us say amen.
May it be your will, Holy One, to preserve among us the wise ones, the leaders and teachers, whether acknowledged or unacknowledged, in all the places of their habitation: and let us say amen.
May it be your will, Holy One, that good tidings of salvation and comfort be proclaimed and heard, and that you gather the lost and disregarded from the four corners of the earth; and let us say amen.
May you have mercy upon us, and bring us forth from trouble to respite, from darkness to light, from subjugation to freedom, now, speedily and soon; and let us say amen.
Stephen’s Episcopal Church worship, Sunday, 1/17/2021
As you proceed this week through this season, reflect on the litany and how you can say your own “amen.”
