Today's prayer focuses on the theme of thanking God for all of the
blessings in our lives.
We thank you this morning for all that we have.
Even if we have problems with my health, we are alive today.
If we have money problems, we will eat today.
We have clothes to wear, a roof to protect us, and air to breathe.
Let us never take for granted these gifts of life, oh Lord,
but always remember that they come from you;
we pray to live this day in joy and thankfulness for what we have,
remembering always who made us and who keeps us.
