"We have come over a way that with tears has been watered. We have come treading our path through the blood of the slaughtered. Dear God, loving God, gracious God, we come before you today not to ask for blessings, but to thank you and praise you for our life. We know that where two or three are gathered, you are in the midst. As a loving Father, we know that you shower us with blessings every day. So we praise you and thank you. We thank you for guiding us in the right direction. We thank you for peace in our homes. We thank you for health and well - being. We thank you for the breath of life that allows us to make a difference in the lives of others, in the name of Jesus. Amen."
