The Great Thanksgiving

As a part of OKC First's weekly Word and Table service, we have the opportunity to pray this prayer (as part of The Great Thanksgiving liturgy) every week before we take communion together:

"It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, almighty God, creator of heaven and earth. You formed us in your image and breathed into us the breath of life.

"When we turned away, and our love failed, your love remained steadfast.

"You delivered us from captivity, made covenant to be our sovereign God, and spoke to us through your prophets, who looked for that day when justice shall roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream, when nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore."
