Rejoice and give thanks for the gifts in your life with these prayers of thanksgiving and gratefulness.

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of hosts, heaven and earth are full of Thy glory: Glory be to thee, O Lord Most High.

Thanks to You, my joy and my glory and my confidence, my God, thanks to You for Your gifts; preserve them in me for so will You perserve me, and those things You have given me shall increase and be perfected, and I myself shall be with You, because even my existence is Your gift.

by Augustine of Hippo (354-530)

Lord, thank You for my body in all its amazing and miraculous workings.
God, thank You for my will and my spirit, and turn them increasingly toward You.
Father, thank You for the voice with which I can and must praise You.
Jesus, thank You for providing me with Your perfect example.
Lord, thank You for the creation that manifests Your love and constant attention.

by Marci Alborghetti

O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon His name; make known His deeds among people.

Psalm 105:1
Source: King James Bible

God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform;
He plants His footsteps in the sea,
And rides upon the storms.
Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take;
The clouds ye so much dread
Are big with mercy, and shall break
In blessings on your head.

by William Cowper

Thanks be to You, our Lord Jesus Christ,
for all the benefits which You have given us,
for all the pains and insults which You have borne for us.
Most merciful Redeemer, Friend and Brother,
may we know You more clearly,
love You more dearly,
and follow You more nearly,
day by day.

St. Richard's Prayer
