Thank you, Lord, that your ways are higher than our ways, and your thoughts are higher than our thoughts. Thank you that when we do as you say, you make things work out in ways we didn’t even imagine.
Thank you for creating us in your image. Thank you that we may love. Thank you that we may think and perceive and receive. Thank you for giving us speech, that we may speak words to you and to one another and to ourselves. Thank you that we may hear, and understand.
Thank you for making us able to read and write, that we may speak even in another time and place from where we are. Thank you that we may read words written long ago, and far away.
Thank you for your word which created us and all things. Thank you for your word, which guides us, and teaches us, and cleanses us, and sanctifies us, and comforts us, and gives us a way to know you more and more.
Thank you for your word, through which you speak to us, as to a friend.
Thank you, Lord, for loving us.
