Counting Our Blessings

Sep 29, 2020
Gratitude booklet

Reflect

God sends us blessings throughout the day, though we don’t always recognize or appreciate them. In order to cultivate a gracious heart, let us pray for openness first.


Pray

Dear God,
Your blessings take many shapes
but I do not always welcome them.

In the busyness of the day,
give me eyes
to see the beauty around me
and a heart
that is open to its graces.

Let me share those blessings
with those 
who have less.
Amen.


Act

At the close of day today, write down three blessings that lifted your spirits. Offer up this prayer again in thanks to a generous God who provided them.
