Something to read

Hannah prayed and said, ‘My heart exults in the Lord; my strength is exalted in my God.’

- 1 Samuel 2:1 from full reading 1 Samuel 2:1-3.

Something to think about

Hannah prayed with great patience for years. When God answered her prayers, she remembered who it was who was responsible.
Do you too easily forget who made you, who has blessed you? To be told, ‘because you are worth it’ can boost our self-centredness and make us forget who we should be expressing our gratitude to.
Let us give thanks to God with humility.

Something to do

Make a list of some of the things you are grateful for today before saying the prayer below.

Something to pray

Merciful God, I am truly grateful for your many blessings. Forgive me when I fail to remember who is the source of those blessings, when I take things for granted.
