Today, we pray for the gift of gratitude
Lord Jesus, You have given us so much, we pray today as we begin a new year, for the gift of gratitude. Thank you, Father, for having created us and given us families. Thank you for being with us in all our joys and sorrows, for your comfort in our sadness, your companionship in our loneliness. Thank you for yesterday, today, tomorrow and for the whole of our lives. Thank you for friends, for health and for grace, for unknown blessings on their way. For enemies, who taught us the meaning of selfless love and complete forgiveness. For food, water and clean air. May we live every day conscious of all that has been given to us. Most importantly, thank You for giving us Your Son – Our Precious Saviour. We love you, Lord – so much. Amen.
