Daily Meditation - A Thanksgiving Prayer

Thanksgiving - The traditional prayer by Dear Abby

Oh, Heavenly Father,
We thank Thee for the food
And remember the hungry.
We thank Thee for health
And remember the sick.
We thank Thee for friends
And remember the friendless.
We thank you for freedom
And remember the enslaved.
May these remember?
Stir us to service,
That Thy gifts to us may
Be used for others...
Amen

Daily Meditation – How I am loved by God (Prayer on my Dossier)

As part of the introduction to the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, we consider how we are loved by God.  To this objective, consider the following condensed meditation of Prayer on my Dossier.

Jot down in a notebook or just consider in your mind the particulars of you coming into this world – the place, time, parents, etc. Next consider characteristics and qualities inherited from your parents or family such as habits, intelligence, confidence, anxiety.  Afterwards, consider your personal qualities, both those that you like and those you don’t (i.e. I’m positive, negative, energetic, sensitive, etc.).  

As you note these qualities, acknowledge them as gifts from the One who makes us.  “For all this, God chose for me within the human family; for all this, I praise and thank God.”

When finished, recite Psalm 130 – “A song of ascents. Out of the depths I call to you, LORD; Lord, hear my cry! May your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy. If you, LORD, mark our sins, Lord, who can stand? But with you is forgiveness and so you are revered. I wait with longing for the LORD, my soul waits for his word. My soul looks for the Lord more than sentinels for daybreak. More than sentinels for daybreak, let Israel look for the LORD, For with the LORD is kindness, with him is full redemption, And God will redeem Israel from all their sins.”

Finally, remember that God did not finish making me once, long ago.  Rather, I remember that God continues to make me and has hopes for me. He desires that I keep growing in love until I love as completely as he does.
