Thank you for loving me when I am sad, distressed, worried, crabby and impatient just as you love me when I am thankful.
And may whatever I decide to be and to do this Thanksgiving Day be blessed by You
Thank you for the abundant blessings bestowed on me through my family and friends!
With grateful hearts we bow are heads in thanksgiving
May I always love you and serve you
Creator of the Universe, in your grace you promise us that those who die still live in Your presence. Their spirits have simply been transformed but have not ended. I pray in gratitude and hope for my family, relatives and friends that have gone before me, and for all the dead known to You alone.
When I am in shock, please God help me to just keep breathing.
When I am numbed out, please let others reach in to touch my heart.
When I am in denial, give me the grace to accept what is true.
Thank you for all the wonderful things
You have made:
The whole world, all the people
My home, my school, my friends, my pets.
I don’t even want to recount
what has happened
in my life this year.
I just want to be with the One
who already knows.
who knows me through and through
better than I know myself.
If I fail in speech,
I pray You will teach
me kind words to speak.
Be my guide.
Help me to be aware
Of all that lies before, behind and around me.
Give us an abundance of patience as we learn to juggle our teaching, sanitizing, distancing and masking, while trying to be attentive to the needs of our students.
Are you in need of prayer?
You're not alone.
We'd like to pray for you.
Take the inspiration home
