Abba, Father, thank you that you are gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love. Jesus said that, in the same way, that we like to give good gifts to our children, you also delight to give us good gifts. May I start each day with thanksgiving for your blessings. May I end each day with gratitude for your grace. Fill my life with thanksgiving that will free me from feelings of resentment. To you be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
