Thank you, Father, for so many opportunities to learn, grow, serve, and love. Instead of being discouraged by so many needs out there, let me be encouraged and motivated that you open so many doors.

My heart overflows with gratitude, O Lord, who gives life, that you preserve us and make life so interesting and beautiful.

God who knows every hair on our heads, I’m terrible at math, and worse at counting my blessings. Help me to keep up better and be grateful. I confess my ingratitude.

And what would we do if we had no prayer to express our thanks?! For this, too, I am grateful.

Each footprint along the pathway of life is a learning experience. Though sometimes painful, Father, I thank you for your patience and love which disciplines and guides. Let me not forget the lessons.
