Father, I thank you for the quietness of home
Sweet refuge from the storms of life.
I thank you for good and wholesome work,
For strength to perform what is mine to do.
I thank you for food, for taste and appetite;
For peaceful rest at the close of day
I thank you for your healing touch
To mind and soul and body, too.
I thank you for simple faith to believe
That you will be there; loving, caring for me.
I thank you for bearing all my cares
When we meet each day in the secret place of prayer.

~Ruth Carmichael Ellinger
