Great One who created each of us, I come to you in Gratitude.

I am grateful that you gave every human being a good mind and a good heart. I am grateful that we use our minds and hearts to love each other respectfully. I am grateful that you gave each one of us the capacity to see beyond the things that divide us and find the place where we hold hands with one another, the place where our hearts all beat with the same rhythm.


I am grateful that we humans appreciate each other. I am grateful that we love each other. I am grateful that among us, we have the collective wisdom to live these things today and to pass them on to all generations yet to come. I am grateful that we have future generations to pass these things to.

I am grateful that we cherish our young ones and surround them with loving kindness. I am grateful that our children draw the future to us and our elders carry the story of where we’ve been. I am grateful that our women and men are strong enough to be gentle and kind. I am grateful that we laugh together, cry together, and witness one another’s lives.


I am grateful for all the variations of human being. We are a colorful, creative species and I am grateful that we show our beauty in so many different ways. I am grateful that we use our religions and spiritual paths to help us love our differences. I am grateful that we arrange ourselves in families, communities, and cultures. I am grateful that each of these groups cherishes and expands portions of our collective wisdom and beauty. I am grateful that we share these things with each other and celebrate these things about each other.

I am grateful for our companion species on this Earth. They bring beauty and wisdom to our shared home. I am grateful that each species has a purpose of their own and our bodies are perfectly matched to the purposes we serve. I am grateful that all of us find the places where we support each other’s lives.


I am grateful for those who walk beside us as beloved companions. I am grateful for those who give their bodies for our nourishment, protection, and learning. I am grateful for those who have very little contact with us, living in ways that we cannot. I am grateful for their willingness to show us there’s more for us to learn.  


Great One who created each of us, I come to you in gratitude.


I am grateful for the air we breathe. I am grateful that each breath I take was once the breath of another and each breath I release will become the breath of another. I am grateful that the air connects each one of us to all of the others in an eternal circle of life.


I am grateful for the water that moves around our Earth, touching everyone and bringing health and beauty to each of us. I am grateful for the soil that covers our Earth. I am grateful that every human being who ever has been, and ever will be, is made of this sacred soil. I am grateful for the beautiful home that you’ve given us and for our gentle care of this place.


Great One who created each of us, I come to you in gratitude.


I am grateful that you surrounded our Earth with a beautiful sky. I am grateful that you gave us light and warmth from the sun and light and coolness from the moon. I am grateful that you show us the stars and let us know there is so much more than us. I am grateful that you decorate the sky with rainbows and shelter us with clouds.


I am grateful that you dreamed us into being and created us with the freedom to choose our own way. I am grateful that you gave us minds that grow. I am grateful that you gave us the capacity to dream and believe that which we cannot prove. I am grateful that you gave us souls that remember our own sacredness.


Great One who created each of us, I come to you in gratitude.

I am grateful that we nurture life wherever we go.
