Prayer for Gratitude


My dearest sisters,

The best way we can overcome envy is with the virtue of gratitude. Try and start each day with thanksgiving.

Take some time to pray this litany of thanksgiving for all the gifts that you have in your life.

LITANY OF THANKSGIVING (From Magnificat)

This is a day to thank God for all his many blessings in our lives. With gratitude we now say: We thank you, O Lord.

For the love of God, for faith, family, and friends: We thank you, O Lord.

For joys, successes, achievements, and accomplishments: We thank you, O Lord.

For health, safety, work, and rest: We thank you, O Lord.

For struggles, sorrows, trials, and sufferings: We thank you, O Lord.

For our jobs, for those who support us, for our education, and for the chance to serve: We thank you, O Lord.

For our gifts, talents, and abilities, for honors, for strength and energy: We thank you, O Lord.

For our homes, for food, warmth, and shelter, for all the things that have made us happy: We thank you, O Lord.

For our hobbies and pets, for happy memories, for our favorite things, for leisure and relaxation: We thank you, O Lord.

For our nation, for freedom and peace, for teachers, leaders, and those who give us good example: We thank you, O Lord.

For the ability to say "I'm sorry," for the grace of repentance, for the forgiveness of others, for the generosity of others: We thank you, O Lord.

For good advice, for financial security, for the trust others put in us, for tenderness, understanding, and compassion: We thank you, O Lord.

For kindness, goodness, joy, and laughter, for the times we have helped others or made them happy: We thank you, O Lord.

For all the wonders of creation, for beauty, music, sports, and art, for new opportunities and second chances: We thank you, O Lord.

For failures and rejection, for all the ways we have grown up and become better people: We thank you, O Lord.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

In Christ, Diana
