As Jesus and his disciples travelled along they met a man on the road who said to him, ‘I will follow you wherever you go.’  Jesus answered, ‘Foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.’  [Sunday’s Gospel]

This litany of belief is a prayer based upon the prayer of the father of the boy possessed by a demon (Mark 9:24) and the profession of faith of St. Thomas the Apostle (John 20:28).  The responses are:  ‘I do believe, help my unbelief’ and ‘My Lord and my God’.

 

LITANY OF BELIEF

 

Lord, have mercy … Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy … Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy … Lord, have mercy.

 

When I am overcome with doubt … I do believe, help my unbelief.
When I don’t think you are near … I do believe, help my unbelief.
When I want to trust but can’t … I do believe, help my unbelief.
When I feel too sinful for your mercy … I do believe, help my unbelief.
When the road is too dark … I do believe, help my unbelief.
When I fear where you are leading me … I do believe, help my unbelief.
When my faith falters … I do believe, help my unbelief.

 

You are my hope … My Lord and my God.
You hold me close … My Lord and my God.
You take my hand … My Lord and my God.
You heal my wounds … My Lord and my God.
You are my light … My Lord and my God.
You are my courage … My Lord and my God.
You are my salvation … My Lord and my God.

 

Hear this prayer of my heart, O Lord.  Amen.
