Lord, there are days we’ve been so busy, but today we choose to slow down and say thank you. It’s a simple prayer Lord. We want to start off today thanking you, for the gift of people in our lives, for the food we receive each day, and for the work you’ve given us to do. Give us the wisdom to say thanks, even when life is hurried or we don’t feel so thankful at the moment. Give us the courage to look for You. And give us the eyes to see those who need a kind word from us. Lord, touch Your world with the gift of peace, with you, with neighbors, with family and between countries. Help us to live out the love You show us. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
