Almighty and merciful God, we give You humble thanks for all Your goodness and loving kindness to us and to all people. We thank You for our creation, preservation and all the blessings of this life; but above all for Your immeasurable love in the redemption of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ; for the means of grace, and for the hope of glory. We pray, asking You to give us such an awarenes of Your mercies, that with thankful hearts, we may offer You praise not only with our lips, but in our lives by giving up ourselves to Your service, and by walking before You in holiness and righteousness all our days. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom You and the Holy Spirit, be honour and glory throughout all ages Amen (PCC Book of Common Worship, pg 105).
