This litany is inspired by the account of Christ casting out unclean spirits in the Gospel lectionary passage for the week: Mark 1:21-28.
God we know that you have given us power
To deal with unclean spirits decisively.
We know that you have given us freedom
To be our truest selves,
To face our shadow side,
To live in victory.
Help us to deal with unclean spirits, as we encounter them:
Whether the unclean spirits reside in others
Or in our own selves,
We become aware,
We exercise power in love.
We commit ourselves to being people who walk in the footsteps of Christ
Who tell the truth,
Who create peace,
Who rout out injustice.
Help us to know Christ so well
And reflect your image so clearly
That the world is different and better
When we have passed through it.
