Gratitude – A Prayer

DEAR GOD:

I want to thank you for what you have already done.
I am not going to wait until I see results or receive rewards,
I am thanking you right now.

I am not going to wait until I feel better or things look better,
I am thanking you right now.

I am not going to wait until people say they are sorry or
Until they stop talking about me,
I am thanking you right now.

I am not going to wait until the pain in my body disappears,
I am thanking you right now.

I am not going to wait until my financial situation improves,
I am going to thank you right now.

I am not going to wait until the children are asleep and
The house is quiet,
I am going to thank you right now.

I am not going to wait until I get promoted at work or
Until I get the job,
I am going to thank you right now.

I am not going to wait until I understand every
Experience in my life that has caused me pain or grief,
I am going thank you right now.

I am not going to wait until the journey gets easier or
The challenges are removed.
I am thanking you right now.

I am thanking you because I am alive,
So I may continue being your vessel
I am thanking you because I made it through the day’s difficulties.
I am thanking you because I have walked around the obstacles.

I am thanking you because I have the ability
And the opportunity to do more and do better.
I am thanking you because you have not given up on me.
