(430) I’m Grateful (Prayer)

Rating: 4.0

I’m grateful Lord that you gave your only son to me.
I’m grateful Lord that I have two eyes in which to see
I’m grateful Lord that I have a loving family
I’m grateful Lord that you love me unconditionally
I’m grateful Lord knowing you are always by my side.
I’m grateful Lord that you taught me to stand with pride
I’m grateful Lord for the wisdom of my years.
I’m grateful Lord that you allow me to shed many tears.
I’m grateful Lord for all the food that you prepare.
I’m grateful Lord for teaching me how to share.
I’m grateful Lord for the warm breeze of the morning sun
I’m grateful Lord for everything that you have done.

Thank you Father in the name of your precious son Jesus

A nice reminder of the remarkable gifts that we so often take for granted... we should all be so grateful. Well done, Melvina! Brian

Being grateful is loving God and thanking Him for all He's done for us on earth. Through our poetry we thank Him for the gifts He has given us to write for Him. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn

Beautiful poem of Thanksgiving. it touched my heart. for most of us all the graces we receive every day from God is simply taken for granted.
