Prayer of Gratitude

A purple rose.

What is it?

  • Pausing to be grateful for the gifts that you have received in your life, in your week, in your day.
  • Giving thanks to God the Creator.

Ways I can do it?

  • In your own words name things that you are grateful for.
  • At the end of each day recall three people or events that you were grateful for.
  • Keep a list of things you are grateful for. Add to it daily.
  • Write a letter to someone who has made a difference in your life. Express your gratitude to that person.
  • Stand still, close your eyes, breath deeply, focus on your senses - what do you hear, feel, smell, etc? Revel in the gifts of the senses and give thanks.
  • Compose your own prayer of gratitude to God.
  • Submit your prayer of gratitude to be posted on our website so that all can share in your joy (faithconnections@csj-to.ca).
