A Prayer of Thankfulness and Gratitude

by Christine Sine


God eternal, righteous and glorious One,

We give you thanks

For breath that fills us with your life,

For love that softens our hearts,

For beauty revealed at every turn.

Christ redeemer, faithful and forgiving One,

We give you thanks

For renewal, transforming our lives,

For peace calming the chaos of our souls,

For hope restoring our faith.

Spirit sustainer, abiding and compassionate One,

We give you thanks

For caring when our hearts are aching,

For friends supportive in times of need,

For generosity lavish and overflowing.

Eternal One, Redeeming One, Sustaining One,

We give you thanks

For You.

Today’s prayer is written with American Thanksgiving in mind. But gratitude and thankfulness is something all of us need more of. What are you grateful for today?

Thanksgiving starts with thanks for mere survival,
Just to have made it through another year
With everyone still breathing. But we share
So much beyond the outer roads we travel; (See complete prayer here)
