Dear God, let me have gratitude today. Let me give thanks for every gift that you deliver to me; even those that do not present themselves in a positive light.
When I am thwarted, let me give thanks for my poor choices from which you have spared me. When others achieve recognition while I do not, let me give thanks for the lesson in humility. When I am attacked, let me be grateful for the trials that strengthen me.
All that comes to me is a gift if I but see rightly.
Above all, let me give thanks today that I am not an accident, but an instrument with purpose. Let me seek it. Let me live it. Let me perform your work and give ecstatic thanks my life is thus arranged.
