Let us give thanks for the blessings of our lives

Let us give thanks for the blessings in our lives.

Let us feel the warmth of family love embracing us. 
Let us feel the richness of friendships, let us give thanks for the care and support family and friends give to us.
They are a blessing to us whether we gather them to us when we are filled with celebration. We bless them, for the times when they come to comfort us. 

Let us give thanks that we are blessed with senses that can take in the beauty of the earth around us, for the glorious colours of a vibrant summer. 
Let us fill our hearts with awe at the miracle of life.

Let us bless the goodness of people who help us in our day to day living, who treat us with courtesy and respect.

Let us give thanks for prayer.
Prayer that takes our thoughts and our wishes and our hopes into the spiritual world and the ear of heave.
Blessed be prayer.
In prayer we confess, in prayer we praise.
In prayer the soul is open.
In prayer the soul receives the love that flows through the universe.
Love that can lift the crestfallen spirit, love that can console, love that repairs and restarts the emotional self that has been damaged by the experiences of life.  

Blessed be prayer and this worshipping community.
