Group Gratitude Circles
In September 2000, Beliefnet user dariaMcB started a gratitude prayer circle to give thanks for the end of the Montana fires and for cooler weather. Days later, she came back with thanks for "Sleep, the dinner Fri., Max, Accepting where I am in the moment...." It didn't take long for others to join the circle: Redd1 gave thanks "for a wonderful mother," Picturetaker96, "for the lessons learned during the death of my parents." This prayer circle is still going strong after three years.
To add your thanks to this ongoing gratitude circle, simply click on Sign In to Submit a Prayer, which can be found at the bottom of the page.
Personal Gratitude Journals
You can use our prayer circle tool to create your own personal gratitude journal, a place to list your blessings on a regular basis. Each and every day record the small and large gifts that are enriching your life. It could be a sense of well-being or an exciting challenge at work; maybe it's your children, friends, or family that grace your life.
Ongoing list of what Beliefnet readers are grateful for and what positive attributes they each possess.
