A Prayer of Gratitude

by speaker and author Oscar Motomura

“Thank you God for who I am.
Thank you for You,
For all living beings,
For the love I feel that makes me live
Every moment of my life with great joy,
Helping me bring joy
To all that my life touches.

Thank you God for the opportunities I have every day
To express the best I have in me,
For being able to be of service to every person I meet.

Thank you God for the perfect peace I feel inside,
Tranquility, serenity, Divine Quietness.
Thank you for everything I learn
From all I experience and all I create every day.

Thank you God for inspiring me,
For helping me create Heaven on Earth
Now, and now, and now,
And in every moment I think, speak, and act.

Thank you God
For being who I am.
Thank you,
Thank you,
Thank you.”
