This is not a prayer. Nor is this a complaint about something I'm not satisfied with. And I'm definitely not blaming You for anything! In fact, You might be surprised to hear this, but I want to express my gratitude, for a change!
I want to thank You for making things alright. I want to thank You for helping me make the right decisions...even if they don't seem so right at first! Thanks for pulling me up when I'm struggling. Thanks for holding my hand when I reach out to You. And thanks for being so patient with me when I crib incessantly about insignificant things! With Your help, I've been able to own up to my mistakes- and make amendments.
You have blessed me with a loving family and supportive friends. You have helped me see how much they love me, and how much I love them. And how important they are to me in every way possible. I owe you a great deal for that.
Thanks for making me see beyond appearences and into the hearts of people around me and to help appreciate their inner beauty. Thanks for giving me a healthy body so I can make myself useful to those who are less fortunate. I know I complain about some things a lot, but deep down, You know I'm thankful.
You have been guiding me all these years. And I know You wont leave my side, ever. Thanks for being my best pal, my pillar of strength and the love I seek. Thanks for being there God. I love you.
