Let us give thanks to the Lord,
our rock, our fortress, and our deliverer.
Let us remember his mercy, for he is gracious and compassionate.

We thank you for calling us to faith in Christ,
For forgiving our many sins,
for putting your Spirit within us,
for lavishing your love upon us,
for gathering us into your church.

We thank you Lord, for pouring out your grace upon us,
for calling us to a life of gratitude,
for dignifying us by calling us to service in your Kingdom.

Thanks be to God!

Let us give thanks to the Lord,
for he satisfies the thirsty, he restores the broken,
he heals the afflicted.

We thank you, gracious Father,
that you provide for all our needs,
for the food on our tables,
for the cloths on our bodies,
for the homes that shelter us,
for the freedoms we enjoy in our country.
We praise you for all your gifts that go beyond our basic needs,
for the modern conveniences that make life easier,
for the beauty and pleasure that your creation brings into our lives.
We give thanks to you, O God!
