We thank you today for your relentlessness.
As often as we wander from your presence
you lovingly bring us back.
When indwelling sin rears its ugly head,
your steadfast love never fails.
Let us live with confidence and gratitude,
thankfully remembering that your son Jesus
once and for all crushed death to death,
and with hope that one day
all remaining remnants of sin
shall one day disappear.
Let us live today
with a thankful awareness
of your presence in all things:
the gathering of your saints,
a conversation with good friends,
the enjoyment of a good meal,
whether a sumptuous feast
or simple piece of bread.
Let us remember that all creation
attests to your glory,
raising hands and hearts
in grateful praise every moment
of every day.
To you be all glory and honor and praise.
