Litanies & Prayers

Wonderfully made

A litany for worship inspired by Psalm 139

by Ken Sehested

Merciful One, you have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you hear my thoughts from far away.

Encompass me with your Presence, and lay your hand on my heart.

You know all my comings and goings, and I am never out of Your sight.

Encompass me with your Presence, and lay your hand on my heart.

Even before a word forms in my mind and comes from my lips, you already know it.

Encompass me with your Presence, and lay your hand on my heart.

You are the One who formed me and planted me in my mother’s womb.

Encompass me with your Presence, and lay your hand on my heart.

I have been awesomely and wonderfully made! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Encompass me with your Presence, and lay your hand on my heart.

Should I ever forget these things, visit me again to remind me.

Encompass me with your Presence, and lay your hand on my heart.
