Thanksgiving Prayer: Unclutter Our Lives

Here’s a prayer of confession and petition from John Birch’s Faith and Worship website.

Thanksgiving Prayer

Unclutter our lives, Lord
we have too much,
consume too much,
expect too much.

Grant us perspective;
to see this world
through others’ eyes
than just our own.

Grant us compassion;
where there is need
to play our part
not turn aside.

Grant us gratitude
for what we have,
our daily bread
the gift of life.

Unclutter our lives, Lord,
give us space,
thankful hearts.
