Almighty God, Father of all mercies, we Your humble servants give You our most humble and wholehearted thanks, for all Your goodness and all the loving kindness You have given to us and to all men. We bow in worship to You for You alone are God.  Holy Father we thank You for our creation, preservation, and all the blessings of this life; but above all we thank You for Your immeasurable love in the redemption of the world by Your Son and our Lord, Jesus Christ.  We thank You for Your grace and for the hope of glory that comes in knowing Jesus as our Lord and Savior. And we ask You to give us that right and proper sense of all Your mercies, that our hearts may be truly thankful, and that we may give You praise, not only with our lips but in our lives; by giving up ourselves to Your service, and by walking before You in holiness and righteousness all the days of our life; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom with You and the Holy Spirit, all honor and glory is due. Amen
