Lord, I know that you are here with me now. Empty me of concerns, plans and random thoughts so that I can surrender to your presence.
“Ten were cleansed, were they not? Where are the other nine?” (Luke 17:17)
As one of many whom you heal and save, please show me how to thank you with all my heart, in all my words and deeds. By your will, I exist; by your love I am sheltered. Direct my every step toward you.
Were it not for your love, unmerited and yet freely bestowed, I could not dare to approach you. Yet, here you are, beckoning to me, inviting me, saying, “Fear not.” Let my every breath be a sigh of gratitude. Remind me to thank the family and friends who contribute to me in ways they probably don’t realize. They are your instruments. Bless us all, my Lord and my God.
