ANTI-ADDICTION DAY

MUSIC & WORSHIP RESOURCES

Michelle Riley Jones, Lectionary Team Liturgist

Worship Planning Notes

Consider the following as you plan your Worship Service for this Lectionary moment:

  • Have your bulletin cover display graphics that represent various types of addictions.

  • Have your youth create banners and videos about overcoming addiction.

  • Provide information on how to contact church-based and other local community resources for various addictions. This can be an insert in the bulletin and should always be readily available. See the 2011 Anti-Addiction Cultural Resource unit for suggestions.

1. Invocation, Litany, or Congregational Reading
Litany

Substance Abuse Awareness

O God, you are great, and your name is great in all the earth! Speak to us of your creation and of the purpose for which you have created us. Speak to us with urgency as we desperately search for answers to the plague of addiction.

Speak to us, Lord, with words of healing and victory.

Contemplating the global plight of addiction leaves us wounded and confused. The death and destruction that this plague brings humbles us and menaces the health and survival of many who love and care for us.

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth; and it was good. We are marvelously and wonderfully made.

Rescue us from the hand of the wicked and cruel who profit from the demise of others. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom the Lord has chosen as his heritage.

Happy are those who take refuge in God instead of in the things of this world.

We know that our bodies are Godís temple and that Godís Spirit lives in us. God, help us not to destroy these temples.

Addiction occurs in rich and poor; in educated and uneducated; in church folk and unchurched; in all ethnic groups, classes, professions, neighborhoods, and homes.

In the name of Christ, make us ready to accept the challenge of social wholeness as a high priority. Set the captives free and deliver your people from all that is against them.

Greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world. Let God arise and his enemies be defeated. We bind addictions of all kind and we release life-affirming love throughout creation. Amen.
