I hope I'm not stepping on any toes, in this case, fingers, with this blog, because this is the day after the subject of the post. It is a Thanks Giving and others may have written about the holiday. All else aside, I feel quite strongly about this prayer and hope others will view it kindly, even though you may not pray to the same higher power.
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 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 for the "ups" and "downs" of life.
Thank you Lord for the precious gift of life itself.
Help us to 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.
