However, other boats came from Tiberias, near the place where they ate bread after the Lord had given thanks– (John 6:23)
Jesus, you lived a life of giving thanks to your Father — please help us join in that life of thanksgiving.
Holy Spirit, move our hearts to give thanks to our Father in Heaven in all the circumstances of our lives.
Father, thank you for your care for us. Thank you for being my father — for daily showing me your love and care and provision. Thank you for who you are and what you do.
Holy Trinity, One God, bring this diocese to a life of daily thanks giving. Amen.
A word received: Don’t be afraid.
