It is important to give thanks for what we are grateful for in our lives for many reasons. Not least of which doing so reminds us of all the good things we have which can’t be bought or given away. It also reminds us we are all connected with one another and that we should lend our hands whenever possible to those who are not as fortunate.
Below is a typical gratitude prayer which I will say every day. Sometimes on its own and sometimes at the end of a meditation.
What would yours include?
I am grateful for my wonderful man who works so many hours to look after our family, supports me unconditionally and who makes me a happy and contented woman
I am grateful for my beautiful children and granddaughter who make me proud every day
I am grateful for my Mother Goddess who shows me unconditional love, understanding and accepts me just as I am
I am grateful for my life-giving breath which keeps me here amongst those I love on Earth
I am grateful for those people who enrich my life in the present and those who taught me valuable lessons in the past
I am grateful for the food on my table and having enough to feed my family each day
I am grateful for having fresh water available every day
I am grateful for the warmth of the Sun on my face
I am grateful for the stars above me which twinkle ever brighter in the blackest of nights
I am grateful to have the ability to learn, think and grow so that I never stop being able to answer the most important questions
I pray for peace and understanding amongst us all; an end to fear, prejudice, poverty and famine
I send healing energy to the Earth herself, in humble gratitude for the life she gives us all
I send a hug to all those who need it to remind them they are loved
All is well and as it should be for my highest good
