We thank you God.
Through his death, He redeemed the world.

For the Church, we thank you God.
It is a light and beacon of your salvation.

For the saints and martyrs, and others in our
church history, we thank you God.
They have born witness to your graciousness.

For our loving spouses, we thank you God.
Together, we strive to seek you.

For our children, we thank you God.
They are our future.

For our loved ones and friends, we thank you God.
They are a reflection of your great love for us.

For our jobs, homes, and all that we have, we thank you God.
You have provided for us in abundance.

For our country, and our many freedoms, we thank you God.
We are mindful of those who do not have these many freedoms,
Especially the freedoms of assembly and worship.

In all, we pause and reflect on all that you have given to us.
Thank you for all that you have done for us.
