Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Dear Lord,

Help us to remember today that everyday is a cause to celebrate! No matter what happens or who happens, there is always something to celebrate.
Today we will celebrate the gift of life. Thank you for giving us life, strength and as our mothers would say, a reasonable portion of health.
Today we will celebrate joy. The weeping is over and joy has met us in the morning. Today we celebrate your everlasting love because your perfect love casts out fear.

Today give us an opportunity to share a smile with someone who needs one. Give us a chance to hug someone we care about and mean it!

We are so consumed by the challenges of our community and country that we forget that there is a lot to be thankful for. Empower us to celebrate along the way today and not just at the end of the road. Today we rejoice and again I say rejoice! Amen and Amen!
