A PRAYER OF GRATITUDE

Oh Lord, God of Israel,
Thou art also my God.
Thou hast created the heavens and the earth,
And all things therein.
There is nothing in Heaven or above or below,
That can compare with Thee.
Thou hast been my companion, when I had no companion.
Thou hast been my protector, when I was beset by my enemies.
Thou hast given me sustenance, when I was in need.
Thou hast healed all my ills and sufferings,
Forgiven me my transgressions,
And called me, Friend.
Thou hast paid the price that bought me out of slavery,
And certain death, and called me Thy Child.
Truly, Thou art the need that all hearts cry out for.
I love Thee, but most important, Thou hast loved me,
Beyond all measure, when no one loved me.
Keep me, My Lord, forever unto Thyself,
And make me pleasing in Thine eyes.
Amen




"JESUS TOLD THIS STORY:
A MAN LOANED MONEY TO TWO PEOPLE, $5,000.00 TO ONE MAN AND $500.00 TO THE OTHER, BUT NEITHER COULD PAY HIM BACK SO HE KINDLY FORGAVE THEM BOTH, LETTING THEM KEEP THE MONEY. wHICH DO YOU SUPPOSE LOVED HIM THE MOST? 
I SUPPOSE THE ONE THAT OWED HIM THE MOST', ANSWERED SIMON.
CORRECT SAID JESUS."
                                  Luke 7:41-43

I know I owe Him lots, how about you.
