Litanies & Prayers

Rouse yourselves

A litany for worship inspired by Ezekiel 2:1-5

by Ken Sehested

Rouse yourselves, O creatures of clay, for it is I, the Potter of Heaven, who commands your attention!

We tremble, but trust that your grace is sufficient.

On your feet, O mortal ones! The One whose Name is whispered in the wind now summons your presence!

We tremble, but trust that your grace is sufficient.

Brace yourselves! For I am sending you to an impudent and stubborn people. Speak up, even those whose hearts are deaf.

We tremble, but trust that your grace is sufficient.

Cast off your fear, even when you are encompassed by ascending briars and assaulting scorpions.

We tremble, but trust that your grace is sufficient.

MercyFull ones, do not hide your scandal-ridden hands or your scorn-scarred hearts. Trust the promise, claim the power, walk in the light of God.

¡Alabaré! Praises be! ¡Marchemos! March on!
