Abba,
There are so many things I want to thank You for today. The sunrise that was given as I spent time with you in the early morning hours. For my wife, who loves me even when I seem to fall short of showing her how much she really means to me. Also for the laughter of our beautiful children as we all got around to go to church this morning. Your words spoken at church today that filled my soul with comfort and assurance that you love me and will always go before me to prepare the way. But most of all Father I want to thank you for the growth you have given to me today to see your light in others around me and within myself.
I found you in Pastor Davisís embrace and smile as I entered our church this morning. I also heard comfort of your voice in him as he knelt down to tell our five-year-old daughter how pretty she looked today. And I saw your kindness in Mrs. Jones who brought her twice-baked lasagna to Mr. Clark and his children knowing that his wife pasted away this very week just a year ago. I found your patience and loving arms in Miss Jackson and Mrs. Davis whoís turn it was to run the daycare this week, as we pasted to them our newborn twins as they cried.
Most of all I want to thank you for touching my heart to take that young man home who slipped in five minutes late into the service. Only to find out during the drive that he has a drug addiction, and that it has cost him his young wife and newborn child to leave him and go to her mothers. As we dropped him off I also found your loving and pleased eyes on the expression of my wife face as I gave him the bible she had just bought me for my birthday. Father the old one is good enough for me. But in all this prayer I have only given you thanks. But now I want to ask you for something. Please Father let that young man to have seen your love in me this day. Not for me, but for you. Thank you father for finding me worthy to be your servant today. In your precious son Jesus Christ name I pray. Amen

Creative approach--thanking God for fellowship in the form of a prayer.

A few little hints--avoid exclamation points, especially in titles. And I think you meant "passed away" instead of "pasted away."

This gave me a warm feeling, almost as if I knew these lovely people.

a wonderful account of a humble prayer. Very nicely done.

I love the way you expressed how we can see Jesus Himself in the faces of others. If only we would take more time to look....
