Daily Thought For June 5, 2014

A Thanksgiving Prayer

Oh, God, when I have food, 
help me to remember the hungry; 
When I have work, help me 
to remember the jobless; 
When I have a warm home, 
help me to remember the homeless; 
When I am without pain, 
help me to remember those who suffer; 
And remembering, help me 
to destroy my complacency 
and bestir my compassion. 
Make me concerned enough to help, by word and deed, 
those who cry out 
for what we take for granted.
