In thanksgiving

My God, I love You. I am so grateful for Your presence in my life. For all that You have blessed me with this past year. The good and the bad. I have come out stronger, and richer, with a faith deeper than I thought possible. Please keep me close all the days of my life, because I could never be happy without You.

Heavenly Father, bless my dad, sister and brother who have strayed so far from You. Help them recognize Your love, Your divine presence, help them see they need You.


If you have your own prayers of thanksgiving to add, please add them here. A blessed Christmas, and a very happy New Year to all!

Starting the New Year with a prayer:

qui es in caelis,
sanctificetur nomen tuum.
Adveniat regnum tuum.
Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimitte nobis debita nostra
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
Et ne nos inducas in tentationem,
sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women and
blessed is the Fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners
now and at the hour of death. Amen.

Thank you, Lord, for being you and for your many blessings.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be world without end. Amen.
