Gratefulness the heart of prayer
Gratefulness, The Heart Of Prayer: An Approach To Life In Fullness by David Steindl-RastAlthough I do not feel I am a Christian, I found this book illuminating and inspiring. It was also thought provoking, really giving me some things to think about. It reminded me how beautiful Christianity can be. Gratitude and surprise, prayer, faith, hope, love - these were explored in the light of Christianity and given a much deeper meaning than is usually the case. I tried to read this book with an open mind and as much humility as I could. It is well worth the read for anyone interested in deepening their spirituality and embracing life more fully.

All prayer is essentially an act of gratitude. Even the prayer of petition that boils up from some agonizing personal need includes - if it is authentic - a stated belief that "God's will be done" - an expression of our utter dependence on God's mercy. This book is about prayer and gratitude.

So, friends, how is your grateful heart coming? Are you noticing those gifted moments? The ones that often slip by because we are busy looking at the ones that cause us frustration? Did you happen to take into your heart the kind offer to help you out to your car at the grocery store? Or how about the friend that wanted to meet you for lunch just because she likes spending time with you? Did you remember to thank Jesus for the morning light before you allowed your feet to hit the floor? I hope that, as you have journeyed through first posts of the GratefulHeart Series from Marva and me, you have made some steps toward cultivating a grateful heart.
Jane 11 Comments. Joy is that extraordinary happiness that is independent of what happens to us. Good luck can make us happy, but it cannot give us lasting joy. The root of joy is gratefulness. We tend to misunderstand the link between joy and gratefulness. We notice that joyful people are grateful and suppose that they are grateful for their joy. But the reverse is true: their joy springs from gratefulness.
