Merciful God, my entire life is a gracious gift from you. As another day ends, I place myself again at the foot of the cross, where I am forgiven and cleansed by Jesus’ blood. It is here that I find rest and restoration. I thank you for the blessings of today, the refreshing air, the sunlight, the food I have enjoyed, the interactions I have had with other people. You have blessed me beyond the limits of my understanding. Thank you for the mercy and grace you have shown me today. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
