Prayer of Thanks

Be thy saint or sinner, runner up or winner, may ye bask in God's grace, ever grateful  for our wondrous bounty of food, of friends , of family ,and Smiled on by Blessings Bestowed, our eyes tilt and shine humbly toward the heavenly sky, as We, Dear Lord, say Thank You with a joyful cry!

  • Comment from author about the poem: At my cousins recent wedding at the last second I was called upon to fill in for the Priest and do the Honors of saying grace before dinner. Thankfully my mind was clear and an adrenaline surge allowed for a nice original prayer that my sister taped and these were the words that did not fail me.

    Divine and joyful! As though your words were touched by the holy spirit and rose to the occasion, our eyes tilt and shine humbly toward the heavenly sky”

      I think listening to Kind of Blue on the drive over set my mind in a relaxed yet churning mode

      A fine write and prayer Bobby.
      I missed a chance at a Funeral Service. Only knew the person briefly. The Registrar-type person (not a Vicar) came out and asked the few people 'Does anyone actually know J. much, to give a few words/eulogy?' I missed a chance.

      It is refreshing to hear any thanks these days. Gratitude is highly lacking. Whether God, other people, or just good fortune people seem more interested in asking than thanking.

      Gratitude shown through prayer is essential to recognising who we are in this life and how God loves us. Saying thank you to the provider of life should be a natural response. This poem embodies such an act. Thank you

        It has as its own entity symbolically links the love of my closest family and friends. Throughout this city and across many states these words are reverently offered as tribute for all we are thankful for and the sameness in unison of these words warms me as the communal SHARE has deepened beyond perfunctory tradition and all of us knowingly are proud to have this tradition and brought the humane and the divine together in a meaningful and interwoven way. I encourage any and all seeking a simple tradition to adopt this prayer and celebrate w these humble reflections. Feel free to employ.
