(430) I’m Grateful (Prayer) - Poem by Melvina Germain

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

    By Lord's grace you have got eyes, good son and lovely family. In all regards you are grateful to God for his grace of wisdom he gives. This is a nice poem of glorifying God and thanking him from tender core of heart. This is excellently penned.10 (Report)Reply

    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 (Report)Reply

    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. But you in your poem, you are blessing and thanking God Almighty. such a simple poem full of life and vigour and spiritual purity. thank you very much. tony | (Report)Reply

    I enjoyed most the message but can't say enough about the flow in which you encased each and every line. This is a very ominpotent prayer that speaks for me and directly to the heart and soul. You have given me a front seat into all that is important in life but taken for granted so often. Thank you for reminding me of my graces. (Report)Reply
