Let Us Pray (3)

Let us come before him with thanksgiving.
                               —Psalm 95:2

Most generous Father,

Accept my thanks for

  • the measure of health I enjoy,
  • the sheltering comfort of home,
  • the sufficiency of food and clothing,
  • the continuance of mental alertness,
  • the blessings of my country, my community, my church,
  • the memory of those who have loved me whose seats at my table are now empty and the company of loved ones whose seats remain occupied.

Forgive me for a failing awareness of your generosity in gifting me with these blessings—and for my self-centered pride in taking credit for providing them myself.

You have given me so much. I ask for one thing more: a grateful heart.


Thanksgiving should be daily,
not annual.
