GRACIOUS GOD, thank you for the gift of this day.
We know that each day is a gift coming anew from you.
For the beauty of creation, we give you thanks.
For the joy of loving and being loved, we give you thanks.
For the steadfastness of good friends, we give you thanks.
When challenges and hardships overwhelm us, remind us that your grace is all around us, everywhere, to be seen if we just remember to look for it.
Let our prayer at the end of this day and each day be gratitude for what you have given to us.
In Christ’s name we pray. Amen.
– Mary Lou Redding
