Prayer of Gratitude
Thank You, Lord, for all Your gifts of love, especially for those we often overlook.
Thank You for friends – to increase our love for You.
Thank You for enemies – to increase our tolerance.
Thank You for joys and happiness – to strengthen our faith in you.
Thank You for trials and tribulations – to strengthen our courage and perseverance.
Thank You for times when all goes well – to teach us serenity.
Thank You for the days when things are rough – to teach us patience.
Thank You for our successes – to teach us confidence.
Thank You for our failures – to increase our humility.
Thank You, Lord, for the “ups” and “downs” of life.
Thank You, Lord, for the precious gift of life itself.
Help us continue to grow and to learn, to love and to be grateful.
Comfort us when we are disturbed; disturb us when we become too comfortable.
Thank You, Lord, for being by our side.
