Thank You, O God,
For all the people with whom
I have learned lessons, played games,
And walked and talked today.
For all the people who have been kind to me today;
For those whose work and love give me
the things I need, the food I eat,
the clothes I wear, the comfort I enjoy;
For those who have taught me the things which I must know,
if I am to do a person’s job in the world when I grow up;
For those who are fine examples to me of how I ought to live;
For friends without whom life could never be the same.
Thank You, most of all, for You,
My Master, my Example, my Friend.
Help me to sleep well tonight and live well tomorrow.
This I ask for Your love’s sake, Amen.
