God of all bounty, you have lavished us with good things richly and freely to enjoy. Yet, we have failed to honor you as the source of all these blessings. We speak and act as though our blessings were rooted in our own wise efforts. In mercy, forgive our shameful pride and ingratitude. Fill us with the Spirit of thanksgiving that all we do and say would demonstrate our full and glad acknowledgement that our abundance comes fully from you. Quicken us to give to others freely and gladly, even as you have given to us so plentifully, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
