A Prayer for Wednesday, November 23, 2016

Thanksgiving (Part 3)

O God,

Thank you!

Thank you for your grace and mercy. Thank you for loving and forgiving us.

Thank you that, because we follow Jesus, our lives are becoming less and less about ourselves and more and more about others. Thank you that, while we celebrate our reception of your grace and mercy, we are also inspired to share it with other people. Thank you that your mercy and grace can so fill our hearts that they pour out of us onto those who need our love, our acceptance, our forgiveness, and our kindness.

Thank you that we can grow out of self-centeredness and into a glad and willing focus on others.

Let it be, dear Lord. Let it be.
