A Thanksgiving Prayer

Father, I thank You. You blessed me with parents who loved me and treasured me as gold. You have placed wonderful people in my path as I have traveled this road of life. I have a home, enough food, some money in the bank, and friends beyond measure. I have known love. I’ve known sadness. I live in a beautiful state, in gorgeous country where I can experience Your handiwork every day. Your blessings are everywhere, and I have been showered with Your goodness.

Help me to share with others the gifts that have been given to me. Open my eyes to the needs around me. Take away my selfishness. Allow me to make a difference in the lives of others, in whatever ways I can, today and every day, always.

Thank You, Father. Thank You. I am grateful.
