Lord,

We give you thanks and praise; not just because of what You do for us, but because of who You are.

We give you thanks and praise; not just because You never cease loving us, but You do it especially when we are unlovable. 

We give you  thanks and praise; not just when You do what we hope You will do, but when You act with compassion, mercy and justice far greater than we can imagine.

Yet, Lord, we know our thanks and praise pale in comparison to what You deserve. So give us the grace we need to to give You the thanks and praise You deserve; not just with our words, but also in everything we do.

We pray this in the strong name of Jesus.

Amen.
