Thanksgiving Prayer

Estes Park, Colorado – 2004

Mother Goddess and Father God,
I thank you for the Life I enjoy.

I thank you for my family of blood and my family of spirit,
may I always show them the love and support they have shown me.

I thank you for the Land, the Sky, and the Sea,
may I always treat them with honor and respect
and remember than I am a part of them
and they a part of me.

I thank you for all the living things on the Earth,
our cousins and ancestors through the process of evolution,
may I show them compassion
and always honor their sacrifices.

I thank you for this Pagan path that brings me
Wisdom, Truth, and Meaning,
for the Druids, ancient and modern,
who bring me context, structure, and guidance,
and for the Unitarian Universalists
who provide a place and a way
to put it all into practice
here and now.
May my words and deeds honor and support them all.

Lastly, I thank you for speaking to me.
When you call, may my response always be
yes, yes, yes!

Blessed be!

About John Beckett

I’m a Druid in the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids. I’m an ordained priest in the Universal Gnostic Fellowship. I’m the Coordinating Officer of the Denton, Texas Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans. This year I’m also serving as a member of the Board of Trustees of CUUPS National. I’m a member of the Denton Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.

I write as a spiritual practice. It helps me organize my thoughts and work through ideas and concepts. It helps me evaluate my beliefs and practices against my core values and against what I know (or at least, what I think I know) to be true. It helps me interpret my experiences (religious and otherwise) in ways that are both meaningful and honest.

    Thank you for this. I wrote it down in my book why meditating on this day.
