Merciful and loving father, we thank you for allowing us to see another day. Father, I trust everyone has and will understand the true meaning of being thankful. Father, I pray that we all ascertain the power of hope, peace, joy, as well as love. In other words, everyone can be more attentive. “We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away” (Hebrews 2:1). Nevertheless, we thank you father for this day. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
