A prayer modeled after the Dayenu: an ancient Passover prayer celebrating God’s blessings.
God my Father, in Your infinite Goodness You created me out of nothing. You didn’t have to do that. But You did it anyways, because You love me. If You had created me and done nothing more, that would have been enough.
But in Your generosity, You did more. You created this beautiful world and all things in it for my delight. You filled it with incredible sights and sounds. You gave me the changing seasons so I would never get bored. If you had done that and nothing more, it would have been enough.
But You didn’t stop there. You created me in Your Image. You gave me free will, an intellect, imagination, creativity. I can make choices, think original thoughts, create poetry art and music. You gave me the gift of higher thinking that sets me apart from the rest of creation. If You had done that and nothing else, it would have been enough.
And then You did the unimaginable. You gave me Your only Son as a sacrifice for my sins. You sent Him down from Heaven as a baby. You let Him die on the Cross. You brought Him to life again. All to save me from my own disobedience. I can’t even imagine loving someone so much I would sacrifice my own child for her. That was more than enough.

And still You didn’t stop. You gave me the gift of the Eucharist. God-made-Man as my food. I don’t even know how that’s possible, except that You’re omnipotent and can do all things. You feed me with the Bread of Angels every week – every day if I want. You wait for me physically in Eucharistic Adoration, just to sit with me and spend time with me. If You had done that alone, it would have been enough.
But You continue to do good for me in a million small ways every day. You’ve given me an amazing, faithful, loving husband and three precious children. You give us a roof over our heads, clothes to wear, and food to eat. You give us peace in our hearts and in our home. You shower me with blessings and graces and opportunities to grow in holiness. You comfort me in trials and afflictions. You give me the Holy Church to guide me to Heaven.
What more could I ask for?! You’ve given me all that I am and have. All this world, everything in it, and Your very self. Your love is infinite. Your generosity, endless.
God, You are enough for me. But You will never say, “Enough.” You won’t ever stop giving. I give You my love in return.
May it be enough.
