Gratitude

There’s a lot in life to be thankful for: friends, family, faith, love, health, talents of the mind, compassion in the heart. We can be thankful for a purpose in our lives, for a job, for enough money to live on; for all the people in our lives, young and old. None of us has everything we want in life, but we can be grateful for all we have.

Dear God, as I arise today: I give thanks for the gift of life, that I can enjoy every day to the full.

I give thanks for the gift of hearing, that I can appreciate the goodness of others.

I give thanks for the gift of sight, that I can admire the beauty of creation.

I give thanks for the gift of touch, that I can feel both sunshine and rain.

I give thanks for the gift of speech, help me to use it to spread kindness and positivity.

I give thanks for the education that is available to me so that I can reach my potential.

I give thanks for the food that nourishes me every day.

I gives thanks for the talents with which I have been gifted, help me to be confident in using them.

I give thanks for the roof over my head and floor under my feet when I wake to greet each new day, help me to be mindful of those who don’t.

I give thanks for second chances and opportunities to make amends to those who I have hurt.

I give thanks for the love shown to me by those around me, help me to show affection in return.

I am grateful for all that I have, help me to appreciate all that I have and not to get distracted in chasing the things that I don’t.

I am blessed. Amen.

Lord God, we go from this place in thanks for your interest in us.

Make us people who are truly grateful for the wonders of life,

and for strength and support in times that are difficult.

Help us be more mindful, more grateful and more kind.

We make this prayer through Christ our Lord. Amen.
