Miracle of a Day in a Beautiful World

Dear God,

I am so happy and grateful for just the miracle of another day in this beautiful world.  I should never take life for granted.  I am given so much, so much that is beautiful—in nature, in my relationships, in abundance.

I will celebrate this day the wonderful blessings that You give all of us.  If things sometimes seem awry, then let me remind myself that You are living through me, experiencing right along with me.

Thank You for being immanent.

Amen.

Abundant Life

Dear God,

Following a book by Rhonda Byrne, I have been thinking back over my day at the end of it, thinking of things to be grateful about, and choosing the best thing that happened all day long as a touchstone.

It occurs to me that I might anticipate at the beginning of the day good things that might occur and thereby raise my happiness level.  I know You want me really to live life, to have an ever more abundant life—as Jesus is quoted in the New Testament.

Take me by the hand and guide my thinking and my feeling to a new high.  Thank You.

Amen.

God with Us

Dear God,

Thank You for a good dinner out last night!  The food was delicious, the décor lovely, the company superb.  Enjoying a meal in a restaurant was something that didn’t happen during the pandemic.

I appreciate the little things in life that bring joy, like dining when someone else does the cooking.  You are with us in all the big and the little things of our lives.  Thank You!

Amen.

Gratefulness

Dear God,

I appreciate that I know how important a feeling of gratitude is in any given life, including mine.  Gratitude for my blessings keeps me happy and contented, always living in a positive sense.

May I hold to this idea all day long today, and each day in the future.  Thank You for blessing me in so many ways, including this understanding of how important gratefulness is to a life.

Amen.

Weather

Dear God,

What a glorious day You have given us!  The weather is sunny but chilly, a little windy, and very invigorating.  Changes in our world make for a good experience.

I am enlivened by what surrounds me outside our home.  I appreciate that You have given me eyes to see and appreciate the vicissitudes of my climate.

Amen.

God with Us

Dear God,

I feel sleepy this morning.  You know that being sleepy lowers my affect, and I would like a good mood regardless.  There is no need to feel emotional pain about this.  You are still with me.

Knowing that You are with me, guiding my guardian angel, guiding me, is a blessing beyond description.  Thank You for all that You have given me.  Thank You for being You.

Amen.

Gratefulness

Dear God,

My heart is overflowing with my love for You, more so this morning than is customary.  You have blessed me so.  You are like a loyal husband who wants to do something more for me when I am grateful.  And I am very grateful today.

Keep me cocooned in Your love.  Keep me walking the pathway Home to You.  Keep my heart open to You.

Thank You for guiding my every step.

Amen.

Guidance

Dear God,

I ask for guidance, and You respond—not always right away, but the Answer always comes.  For this I give great thanks today.  Knowing that I don’t have to be stumped on anything, but am free just to ask You for the correct Answer is a blessing beyond compare.

Just recently two conundrums presented themselves.  I found the Answer when preparing a meal—both times.  My conscious mind needed to be quiescent so that Your thoughts from the Deep could filter up.

Thank You very much for leading me.

Amen.
