What is the best prayer? Gratitude! A heart full of gratitude for what we’ve received, what we have, and what is coming our way. Thanksgiving is not only for that one day in the autumn when traditionally we are thankful for the harvest. Thanks-giving and being grateful is for every day, every moment, every thought.
And in the same way, the Day of Prayer is not just on this first Thursday of May, but it is in every breath we take and every move we make. We are constantly praying whether we are conscious of it or not. When we mutter under our breath, “I don’t think this will work”, that’s a prayer. When we say, “wow, that turned out great!”, that’s a prayer also.
I know that realistically it’s difficult to have each thought be one of gratitude. But the important thing is that when we find our thoughts heading the other direction, we say CANCEL, and replace those negative thoughts with thoughts of gratitude… for whatever we can think of. Even if it’s that we are alive, or that we have a roof over our head, that we had something to eat today, or that it’s sunny outside. Anything! Gratitude is a feeling and when you’re sending out that energy, then it reverberates in the Universe, which then says YES, and you get more things to be grateful for.
