A Simple Thanks

We may say thank you to someone who holds a door open for us or to a waiter who brings us food in a restaurant. But what does expressing gratitude really mean? May this prayer of thanks help you celebrate the multitude of blessings God has given you.


I’ve been given much, Lord,
through your profound and radiant
love and grace.
Whether in sharing delicious meals with loved ones
or basking in the glory
of the natural world—
all provided by you—
I am blessed indeed.
For all of that you’ve given,
I say with simplicity and sincerity,
"Thank you.”


What is something in your daily life that you take for granted but that is actually a blessing from God? Offer up a quick thank-you note to our Heavenly Father.
