A Lenten Collect for Gratitude

O Lord God, who gives living water to those who are thirsty, make us a grateful people, who praise you for the sustenance you give, that you might be honored and we might acknowledge you as our only source of life, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who defeated death and sat down at your right hand in the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘The wild animals will honor me, the jackals and the ostriches; for I give water in the wilderness, rivers in the desert, to give drink to my chosen people, the people whom I formed for myself so that they might declare my praise.’ – Isa. 43:20-21
