Prayer for Simple Pleasures

Gracious God, encourage us to mindfully appreciate the simple gifts of life. Help us to notice beautiful flowers all around us. Help us to savor the taste of good food and drink. Help us cherish the joyful sound of children laughing. Help us to be fully present with our loved ones. Help us to bask in the kindness of others. Help us to meditate on beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Help us to enjoy the music that birds make while singing. Help us to honor the goodness within us. And help us to be mindful of the miracles of life in countless other ways, too. May those who feel hurried, find peace. May those who feel peaceful, encourage others. And may we all fully enjoy the simple pleasures all around us each day. Amen.
