Oh, God,

Today, please help us remember that…

We are thankful you are here.

We are thankful you give us each other.

We are thankful you love and lift up the brokenhearted.

We are thankful you call us, in love, to do hard things, with love.

We are thankful you remember the orphan and the widow, and all who are vulnerable.

We are thankful you expect us to stand up for those who are oppressed, even when it puts us at risk.

We are thankful you know us: our sins and our regrets, our despair and our hope.

We are thankful nothing can separate us from your love.

Please, help us remember.
