Our first grade class is talking about gratitude. Today we raced through our siddur (prayer book) looking for the words “thanks” and “gratitude” in English. Out of 95 pages, we found those words more than 20 pages. We also wondered, “do the prayers that talk about the great things God does for us, but don’t use those words exactly, count?”
For our game today they don’t count. However, they count a lot towards our bigger discussion. What is the value of expressing our gratitude in prayers?
