The Gratitude Project – Justice or Just-us!

Gratitude Changes Everything. Let’s change the world together!

Today, Sherrilyn is grateful for her loves, family and dear friends. She is also grateful for the privilege of working to advance the cause of justice daily. Let’s pray for her, all justice seekers and supporters and the important work she does for humanity!

Today, I’m grateful for justice seekers and justice supporters!

“…And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

Micah 6:8 (NIV)

Eternal Shepherd of our souls, thank you for being our Good Shepherd, who protects and provides, leads and loves and instructs and transform us in spite of our weaknesses, sins and inadequacies. We bring to you our hopes and needs seeking renewed courage to face the challenges of the day.

Remove the blinders from our eyes so that we can see that all humanity is our brother and sister. Help us to appreciate our diversity not as a sign of superiority or inferiority but as sign of the uniqueness of Your creation.

Deliver us from the shackles that bind us to fear and prejudice. Empower us to help those caught in the vise of discrimination. Enable us to help the hungry, clothe the naked and bring liberation to those held captive by economic disparity beyond their control.

Overcome our stagnant strategies to bring about a new era of equality. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

My mouth will tell of your righteous acts, of your deeds of salvation all day long, thought their number is past my knowledge. 

Psalm 71: 15-16

Almighty and Everlasting God, you have richly blessed us beyond our imaginations. If it had not been for the presence of Christ in our lives, we would have perished a long time ago.  You reached beyond the noise of this world to speak to our hearts of your grace and glory. You captured our attention with a love too wonderful for words. We eagerly turn from our texting, tweeting and tinkering ever mindful of the call to be “doers of your word.”

We can’t help but sing of your righteous acts. We sing your praises in our hearts all day long. We sing of your deeds of salvation even though only a fraction is known to us.  In Jesus name, we worship you and you alone, not ourselves or each other. Amen

Spread gratitude all around today! Gratitude Changes everything!
