Prayer of Thanksgiving: Psalm 121

Here is a prayer of thanksgiving (or closing benediction?) inspired by Psalm 121. It comes from the Monthly Prayers page of the Christian Aid website.

 

Prayer: Thanks Be to the Lord

(inspired by Psalm 121)

 

For those who have watched over me, 
for those that have protected me, 
for those that have shielded me, 
thanks be to the Lord, 
maker of heaven and earth.

For the roof that shades me from the sun, 
for the walls that shield me from the storm, 
for the bed that warms me in the night, 
thanks be to the Lord, 
maker of heaven and earth.

To the one who keeps me from evil, 
to the one who preserves my life, 
to the one who watches over my coming and going, 
thanks be to the Lord, 
maker of heaven and earth.
