A Stewardship Prayer of Thanksgiving

O Divine Gift-giver, I stand beneath the endless waterfall of Your abundant gifts to me. I thank You especially for the blessing of life, the most precious of all Your gifts to me. I thank You, ever-generous One, for clothing to wear, for food and drink to nourish my body, for all the talents and skills that You have bestowed upon me. I thank You for the many joys of my life, for family and friends, for work that gives to me a sense of purpose and invests my life with meaning. I thank You as well for the sufferings and trials of my life which are also gifts and which, together with my mistakes, are among my most important teachers.

Grant that I may never greet a new day without the awareness of some gift for which to give You thanks. And may constant thanksgiving be my song of perpetual praise to You.

Amen.
