At this time we offer up a prayer
To thank you, God, for giving us
a lot more than our share.
First, thank You for the little things
that often come our way…….
The things we take for granted
and don’t mention when we pray….
The unexpected courtesy,
the thoughtful, kindly deed,
A hand reached out to help us
in the time of sudden need.
Make us more aware, dear God,
of little daily graces
That come to us with sweet surprise
from never-dreamed-of places.
Then thank You for the miracles
we are much too blind to see,
And give us new awareness of
our many gifts from Thee.
And help us to remember the
key to life and living
Is to make each prayer a prayer of thanks
and each day a day of thanksgiving.
