Thank you dear God for the gift of life.I have no idea how my mother struggled to have me lived a very healthy baby for nine months in her womb and breathe me out of this world. And I am sorry for all those times when I would hurt her feelings only because I dont need her nagging advice. I am sorry when I was being stubborn and insensitive. Being a mother is not easy.I must know that...and realize even more.
Thank you loving Father for my family and friends. When Jesus was on earth, He must be questioning too being born human who His real families and friends are...because some people in His time were even doubting His motives. And yet, He remained humble and steadfastly believing that You will never leave Him. I wish to practice the same kind of faith esp. when things in life dont turn out the way I want it...and when things hurt.
Thank you God... and that even when there were times when I walked out of your way, you never lose sight of me and have me back into your control. Sometimes I admit that its just too hard to pray.And maybe because most of my petitions are all about me and all my personal cares..when my prayer instead should have been for the helpless. I am sorry when my prayers turned out to be selfish most often.Sometimes I felt so ashamed to have asked for too much from you and yet I give less of me in return. I know you're not expecting too much from me. You simply want be a better person and follower of your words.
Loving Father, help me realize that I must learn to share myself unselfishly to others so that they too will have fullness. And that living is not just simly having three to four meals in a day ,enjoy my hard work earnings, have fun with friends till wee hour and shop till i get satisfied with the latest fashion. But then let me realize that living is what i can give and how much i can give of myself to others so their emptiness will be filled... without counting for something in return. Just as You do.
Thank you for the luxury of this earth that you so freely gave and have us to enjoy though temporarily. Thank you for making me one of your tenants. I hope I have shared even a bit of me to other people. So that my life on earth will have meaning. Dear God, help me realize...that I am here with a purpose. Thank you for the talents and the wisdom that are meant to be shared. I dont just simply exist I know. I am meant to live so that other people will have reason to live too...for "No man is an island".
And so I thank you once again dear God...for the gift of life.Amen.
