Strengthen Us to Praise and Serve

wilhelm_loeheLord God, our heavenly Father,
we give praise and thanks
for your gracious gifts
which you provide so faithfully.
Help us enjoy these blessings
with gratitude and reverence,
that we may be strengthened
to praise you and serve our neighbors;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
