Colossians 3:15-17

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Eckhart von Hochheim (1260 –1328), commonly known as Meister Eckhart, is one of the great Christian mystics. He was born near Erfurt in Thuringia and in his distinguished career became a Parisian Professor of Theology and took a leading pastoral and organizational role in the Dominican Order.

If the only prayer you said was thank you, that would be enough.


Loving God, we give You thanks for today. We know that all that we have, even the breath in our lungs, is a gift from You. Strengthen us to recognize your presence in our lives and to respond with gratitude and praise. Help us to share with others the ways that You have been a blessing in our lives. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
