"Now one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan. So Jesus answered and said, "Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?" And He said to him, "Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well."
Luke 17:15-19

Jehovah, Lord of Lords, I am grateful for all the good that I get from you.
Give that I may share the many good things with others.
I ask you that I shall be able to give freely without expecting anything in its place.
