Prayer of Thanksgiving and Petition

Here’s a prayer of petition and confession suitable on the theme of gratitude.  It comes from the Farming Community Network.


Lord God,
Help us we pray
to recognize the difference between
satisfaction and smugness,
being content and being comfortable.

May our expressions of gratitude never
deafen us to the cries of those in need;
and in celebrating your love
may we never forget
that your love reaches others
through us.  Amen.
