Thank you to the Hannah Ministry at Watts Street Baptist Church in Durham, NC. In May, just before the Mother’s Day/Father’s Day season begins, the Hannah Ministry holds a Service of Grief, Hope, and Worship for those who are grieving infertility, miscarriage, and the loss of infants.
Hannah Service: A Service of Grief, Hope, and Worship
Hymn – Precious Lord, Take My Hand
Litany From Psalm 69
ALL: Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck!
Leader: In the abundance of your steadfast love, answer me! With your faithful help, rescue me!
People:Precious Lord, take my hand, lead me on, let me stand.
Leader: In your abundant mercy, turn to me. Do not hide your face from me.
People: I am weak, I am tired, I am worn!
Leader: Do not let the flood sweep over me. Do not let the Pit close its mouth over me.
People: Through the storm, through the night, lead me on to the light.
Leader: Come quickly to answer me in my distress. Draw near to me. Redeem me.
People: Precious Lord, take my hand, lead me home.
