DEAR LORD, THANK YOU for all the good things you have provided in my life. I have many blessings that I too often take for granted. I thank you for these and for the many people you have chosen to be with me in life’s journey. I thank you too for those things in my life that you have provided as challenges and trials for me to overcome. I thank you for good health, both physical and mental, and pray that you will continue to bless me. I thank you most of all for your unconditional and eternal love. Amen.
