[Note: For litanies approved for public devotion, try the Prayers & Devotions Section.]

Note: The following, while based on Scripture, may be paraphrases of various Bible passages. Capitalization and punctuation of the following may be changed and references may vary. Certain items may not apply to all Persons of the Trinity (i.e. items concerning Jesus' humanity). Also, note that multiple Scripture passages may exist for the items below.
