Gratitude Prayer


"I give thanks that I have risen again today and to the great rising of life itself …

As the sun brightens up the sky and earth, may my soul be bright with gratitude for all the good things in my life, may I be generous in sharing these with others.

I give thanks that I have risen again today and to the great rising of life itself …

As the trees, rivers, animals and everything sing their songs of life, may my soul sing the song of my heart, may I sing it gladly whether in joy or in sorrow,

and may it help me find humour and laughter in the day.I give thanks that I have risen again today and the great rising of life itself …

As the sun crosses the sky to where it will set in the west, may my soul proceed on its journey through life, may I keep the vision of my life ever before me, and may I have faith that my life has meaning.

I give thanks that I have risen again today and the great rising of life itself …

As everything in nature strives to live and survive, may my soul be strong in its struggles,
may I meet adversity with courage and hope.

I give thanks that I have risen again today and to the great rising of life itself …
As the earth spreads out from me to the horizon, may my soul expand to embrace it, may I speak the truth of the land, and take responsibility for my life."
