Thirty Days of Thanks – #10-11

30 Days of Thanks

Nov. 10: An abundance of blessings so great that ennui is even possible.

Nov. 11: From church today. Amen and amen.

Almighty God, Father of all mercies, we who are humbled in Your presence, give You thanks for all Your goodness and lovingkindness to us. We bless You for our creation, preservation, and all the blessings of this life; but above all for Your immeasurable love in the redemption of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ; for the means of grace, and for the hope of glory. Please, we pray, give us such an awareness of Your mercies, that with truly thankful hearts we may declare Your worth by giving up our selves to Your service, and by walking before you in holiness and righteousness all our days; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with You and the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory throughout all ages. Amen.

Adapted from the prayers of St. John Chrysostom, 5th century
