In Gratitude for God's
O Lord and Vivifier,
Your grace has achieved for us all that You
had spoken and promised. Grant us access to
the place of Your peace. For You are our
Vivifier, You are our Consoler, You are our
life Remedy, You are our Standard of victory.
Blessed are we, O Lord, because we have known
You! Blessed are we, because we have believed
in You! Blessed are we, because we bear Your
wounds and the sign of Your blood on our
countenances! Blessed are we, because You are
our great hope! Blessed are we, because You
are our God forever! Amen.
Lord, I give You thanks for dying
on the cross for my sins. Amen.
O God, I offer praise and
thanksgiving for favors granted and prayers,
answered especially those obtained through
the intercession of (N.,), who have faithfully
and generously brought my petitions before
You. Help me continually to see the workings
of your grace and blessing in my life and
strive always to live by the example of your
Son, Jesus Christ, the Blessed Virgin Mary,
and all the saints of heaven, especially
those for whose intercession I have prayed.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and
to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the
beginning is now and ever shall be, world
without end. Amen.
Father, source of all health, be near
to those who suffer in the time of
weakness and pain; as You have for us in our
hours of need, relieve them of their burden
and heal them, if it be your will. Give
peaceful sleep to those who need rest for
soul and body, and be with them in their
hours of silence. Bless those who know
not what another day will bring. Make
them ready for whatever it may be:
whether they must stand, or sit or be
confined, grant them a strong spirit.
Inspire with Your love those who bring
healing and care to the suffering. May they
bestow Your gifts of health and strength
wherever they go. We offer up this
prayer to You today in thanksgiving and love
for the blessings You have bestowed
upon us so many times in our lives,
especially now in these hours of need. We
also want to praise You for and ask your
blessing for this Community in Christ you
have given unto us. Thank You, Dear Lord, for
bringing us all into the healing light of
Your everlasting Love. Your Prayer Warriors
are true and mighty. Dear Lord, we come to
You to ask blessings for each and everyone of
these Warriors. Lord, we pray You continue to
love, guide, and protect this Community In
Christ, who has so eagerly given of
themselves. Grant this prayer, through Christ
our Lord. Amen.
for the Gift of Life
Heavenly Father, You are the
giver of ALL life. I thank You, Lord, for the
gift of life which You have given me. Teach
me to recognize the sacredness of my life.
Teach me to honor the sacredness of others.
Remove from me the selfishness that prevents
me from experiencing the majesty of each
soul. Help me to recover from the indignities
that I have suffered and which have
diminished my self respect. Restore in me the
conscious understanding that Your Holy Spirit
lives in me and that all my actions and
thoughts should reflect the holiness of Your
indwelling Presence. Sanctify my life,
Heavenly Father, that I might be a blessing
to all whom I meet. Let this world be a
brighter place because You reached out to
others through my simple acts of kindness.
Help me to believe in my own goodness that I
may resist temptation and celebrate Your gift
of life this day. Amen.
Blessings I've Received
have never spoken with my God In person, face to
Yet deep within my heart I know I was saved by
His loving grace.
I speak with Him through prayer And can feel His
I know that He is with me When my gloomy days are
I long for Him to hold me In His loving arms one
But until then I'll be content To whisper, "
I love You, " as I pray.
What a glad and joyous day it was When in Him I
How can I ever thank Him For the blessings I've
God has done so many wonderful things, But the
ones that I treasure the most
Are the gifts of love that He gave to us - His
Son, Jesus, and the Holy Ghost.

Enter his gates with
And his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him, bless his name!
For the Lord is good;
His steadfast love endures forever,
And his faithfulness to all generations.
Heavenly Father, we praise you and thank you
for the countless blessings and mercies you
have shown us.
You have blessed America as a refuge for
Pilgrims from all corners of the earth and
from every era.
You have strengthened us in time of trial and
held us up in the face of adversity.
You have granted us this beautiful and
You have granted us the fruits of freedom, of
worship, and hard work.
Remind us to be humble in our abundance and
to remember the sacrifice of those who came
before us and who so trusted in you.
Let their example remind us to renew that
trust, to always be thankful, to always be
obedient to your hand and to be no less
strong in our values.
In this harvest moment, we give thanks to you
O Lord, for family and friends, for health
and country, and for the gift of life.
As we gather around our family tables on this
We at Autom will "ask the Lord's
blessing in all that we do".
We ask for this blessing for each other, for
our nation, and for you,
Our customers, Our dear friends in Christ.
