Why be grateful? Prayers and simple ways to thank God

Prayers to thank God for everything

The term 'gratitude', which comes from the Latin 'gratitudo', is defined as:

'The feeling that forces us to estimate the benefit or favor that has been done to us or has wanted to do, and to correspond to it in some way'.

And although we sometimes forget it, we must be thankful for many things as we walk along the path of life.

The Gifts and Benefits of Gratitude ...

Thanking is a beneficial attitude that helps us maintain our happiness and health.

In fact, science is said to have shown that grateful people tend to be happier since the habit of giving thanks releases neurotransmitters such as dopamine, responsible for feelings of pleasure and relaxation.

In other words, we take off a great burden when we are grateful for the good things we have.

Also, for those of us who follow the path of faith, we must know that being grateful is one of the qualities that deities value most. He who is grateful and happy with the little details of life, receives more happiness and more joy from those who guide us to reach our destination.

The resentful and ungrateful seldom feel and perceive the spiritual support of the saints. Gratitude for any gesture, no matter how small, makes us better people both in life and on our spiritual path.

We should be grateful for the little joys in life and not be constantly complaining about what we lack.

On the contrary, we must thank our loved ones for the time they have dedicated to us, for their constant support and for all that they have given us, the deities and our ancestors for their blessings and all who help us to move forward.

Thus, when those we love so much are no longer by our side, we will feel that they will always protect us and guide us from heaven.

Being grateful is, according to many studies, the virtue of recognition and self-worth, which points to happiness, spirituality and the best meaning of life.
