For Appreciation of One Another

We thanks, Father, for that gift of Jesus your Boy who found our planet and resided inside a simple home. There exists a greater appreciation from the value and dignity from the human family while he loved and it was loved within its shelter.

Bless us this very day may we grow for each other for one another within our family and thus appreciate you who’re the producer of human families and our abiding peace.

In Gratitude

Thanks, Father, for getting produced us and provided us with to one another within the human family. Appreciate being around in most our joys and sorrows, for the security in our sadness, your companionship within our loneliness. Appreciate yesterday, today, tomorrow but for the entire our way of life. Appreciate buddies, for health insurance and for elegance. May we live this and each day mindful of all that’s been provided to us.

Prayer at Harvest and Thanksgiving

O God, source and giver of the things,

You manifest your infinite magnificence, power and goodness

On your lawn about us:

We provide you with recognition and glory.

For that sun and also the rain,

For that manifold fruits in our fields:

For that increase in our herds and flocks,

We thanks.

For that enrichment in our souls with divine elegance,

We’re grateful.

Supreme Lord from the harvest,

Graciously accept us and also the fruits in our toil,

In union with Jesus, your Boy,

As atonement for the sins,

For that development of your Church,

For peace and love within our homes,

As well as for salvation for those.

We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer of Thanksgiving by Walter Rauschenbusch

O God, we appreciate this earth, the house

For that wide sky and also the fortunate sun,

For that salt ocean and also the flowing water,

For that everlasting hillsides

And also the never-resting winds,

For trees and also the common grass underfoot.

We appreciate our senses

Through which we hear the songs of wild birds,

And find out the splendor from the summer time fields,

And taste from the fall fruits,

And rejoice in the design of the snow,

And smell the breath from the spring.

Grant us a heart available to any or all this beauty

And save our souls from being so blind

That people pass unseeing

When the common thornbush

Is aflame together with your glory,

O God our creator,

Who lives and reigns for good and ever.
