I have another prayer from Thomas Merton to share- thanking God for special grace and love and communion with the Heavenly Father. I hope it blesses someone today and inspires praise in the heart.
We Give Thee Thanks
We give Thee thanks, O God,
for great moments of joy and strength that come to us
when by a strong and special movement of grace
we are able to perform some act
of pure and disinterested love.
For the clean fire of that love which floods the soul
and cleanses the whole man
and leaves us filled with an unexpected lightness
and freedom for action.
For the moment of pure prayer
which not only establishes order in the soul,
but even fortifies us against physical weariness
and brings us a new lease on life itself.
Glory be to Thee for Thy precious gift!
Thomas Merton (1915-1968)
