My gratitude to You, loving God

To pray is to regain a sense of the mystery that animates all beings,
the divine margin in all attainments.

Prayer is our humble answer to the inconceivable surprise of living.

It is all we can offer in return.

Who is worthy to be present at the constant unfolding of time?

Here we are admist the meditation of the land, the songs of the water, the humility of the flowers, flowers wiser than all alphabets.

Suddenly we feel embarrassed,
ashamed of our complaints and clashes in the face of tacit glory.

How strange we are in the world!

Only one response can maintain us:
gratefulness for the gift of our unearned chance to serve, to wonder, to love life and each other.

It is gratefulness which makes our small souls great.

Thank you, Lord, for the blessings and divine guidance you have bestowed on me and my family . You have provided me with more than I could ever have imagined.

As I express my gratitude to you in prayer, may it be a pleasing, joyful sound to you.

Thank you, Lord, for your love. It brings me acceptance and significance.
Thank you, Lord, for your truth. It brings me guidance and direction.

Thank you, Lord, for your mercy. It brings me help and comfort.
Thank you, Lord, for your faithfulness. It brings me stability and strength.

Thank You , the incomprehensible God, for standing by me when all hopes are dashed and human confidence ended up in vain.

Blessed be thy name, the Ancient of days.
