"Gracious Father, grant me a lowly spirit of gratitude.
Make me feel the preciousness of past grace.
Give me an honest memory of mercy.
Forgive me for the pride of unremembered
gifts and callous thanklessness.
Waken faith in my wavering soul
and give me strong confindence
in your solid promises.
Where past and future meet
make me humble and bold.
In Jesus' name and for His sake,
