Giving Thanks, Sharing With Others

March 29, 2009

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.
His love endures forever. Ps. 136:1

Lord, in this season of March Madness and spring breaks we give you thanks.
We thank you for talented young athletes and the enjoyment that their competition brings.  We thank you for opportunities to gather with family and friends.  We thank you for the freedom to travel, for museums and movies, and for parks and other natural spaces.  We thank you for rest and renewal.

As we watch those who have been given opportunities to develop their talents and to overcome adversity, help us to care for all of our nation’s youth, and not just those with the power to entertain.  Help us to recognize and return the love and support of those you have put in our lives to guide and care for us, and to share that love with others.  Help us know that you are with us always, and strengthened by that knowledge, to share your message of hope and renewal.

Amen
