We post intentions we receive here in case you would like to pray for others. While I pray for these intentions twice a day, every day, when 2 or 3 are gathered, Jesus is with us. And when many pray for these Happy intentions, it becomes something that is great for all of us, for we add intentions, and we grow in grace ourselves. We have a special page if you would like to pray for those who have died. If you would like to add a name to this page, email prayer@thefriar.org, or add your prayer to the Ask for Prayer page.

Prayers of Thanksgiving

I’d like to say a prayer of thanks because I’m able to go to CBC. I’ve met so many people here and this new chapter I’ve started in my life have been amazing. I pray that God will keep watching over me as I continue my journey here.

I have been blessed to know that life is not hard, as long as we focus on the fact that God is with us, always. Each morning, before I taste my first cup of coffee, I take time to thank the Lord for awakening me to another beautiful day on His planet; another day filled with the hope and opportunity to glorify our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I give thanks for the air I breathe, the food I eat, for each beat of my heart that sends life-sustaining blood coursing through my veins. And, then I proceed to give thanks for the people in my life, past and present, who are so dear to me. I am confidant mine is not a perfect expression of gratitude for all that God has seen fit to bestow upon my life, but I attempt to express my gratitude each and every day of my life. Collectively, we take so much for granted; yet owe so much for all that is given us. As Father so eloquently stated, once upon a time, we are so fortunate not to receive that which we truly deserve!

I am thankful for nature! I often thank God for a beautiful sunset, a clear stream, the deer that I see on my way to work, I picture of a mountain that someone has taken a picture of on vacation and shared, a cloud formation, an incoming storm, the birds that sit on the tree outside my office. There is so much beauty to be thankful for in this world. I am sad that many people do not often notice. My prayer would be, God, help us to be grateful and humbled by all your beautiful creations. Help us to find beauty each and every day. And, help us to share beauty with others.

In thanksgiving for my family and friends.

I’m grateful to be alive and to have my family. Not everyone lives close by, but somehow we remain close anyway. I’m grateful for the struggles and sorrows we have to endure. May they accomplish God’s purposes and be to His glory.
