O Lord,

It is right to give You thanks for this day.
For it is from You that all good things come.
It is from You that we receive so many abundant blessings.

We give You thanks
for Your grace, for Your love and for Your care
for us and our families.
We praise You for the gift of faith, of repentance, and for forgiveness.
We give You thanks for Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Savior.

Thank You, Lord, for so many gifts You have given us,
for so many favors You grant us, for so many wonders You have shown us.
For so much, thank You, Lord.
Always help our hearts be grateful and turned toward You.
We pray this through Christ, our Lord.

Loving God,

I come to You in thanksgiving, knowing
that all I am and all that I have are gifts from You.
In faith and love, help me to do your will.

I am listening, Lord God.
Speak Your words into the depths of my soul,
that I may hear You clearly.

I offer you this day all the facets of my life,
whether it be at home, at work, or at school,
to be patient, to be merciful, to be generous, to be holy.
Give me the wisdom and insight to understand Your will for me
and the fervor to carry out my good intentions.

I offer my gifts of time, talent and possessions to You
as a true act of faith, to reflect my love for You and my neighbor.
Help me to reach out to others
as You, my God, have reached out to me.
