Thanksgiving Prayer



Even though I clutch my blanket and growl

when the alarm rings each morning, thank

you, Lord, that I can hear. There are many

who are deaf.


Even though I keep my eyes tightly closed

against the morning light as long as possible,

thank you, Lord, that I can see. There are

many who are blind.


Even though I huddle in my bed and put off

the effort of rising, thank you, Lord that I

have the strength to rise. There are many

who are bedridden.


Even though the first hour of my day is

hectic, when socks are lost, toast is burned,

and tempers are short, thank you, Lord, for

my family. There are many who are lonely.


Even though our breakfast table never looks

like the pictures in magazines and the menu

is at times unbalanced, thank you, Lord for

the food we have. There're many who have no job.


Even though I grumble and bemoan my fate

from day to day and wish my circumstances

were not so modest, thank you, Lord, for the

gift of life.
