Colossians 1:1-8

Psalm 52

Luke 4:38-44

We always give thanks to God…when we pray for you…Col 1:3

Lord, I look to you for all that I need in life. Fill me with an awareness of the many little blessings I so often ignore or take for granted. I thank you for another day of life, another opportunity to see and experience your love for me.  I thank you for the skilled mechanic you sent me to the other day when I had car trouble and could have been stranded. I thank you for the air I breathe, every beat of my heart, every flower, cloud, and star. I thank you for giving me two good eyes to see the beauty, the color, and the wonder of the world you created. I thank you for the water I drink, the food I eat and all the miracles that take place in my body to help me be healthy. I thank you for the pets that lift my spirit with their unconditional love. I thank you for the freedom to choose how I live, where I travel and what I do to support my family. Lord, I see your goodness in all of this. Thank you, Lord; thank you, Lord; thank you Lord.  Amen.
