Thanksgiving Prayer to a Deity

If I have forgotten your presence today, (deity),
thinking I faced troubles all alone,
forgive me this failing.
Knowing that now, when I had the time to stop and think,
I knew that you were there
and that your help made things easier,
made adversities gentler,
slowed my anger
cleared my thinking,
so that my judgments came, as much as is possible,
from a peaceful heart.
We can take if for certain, can't we, that your help will be needed again tomorrow?
When I need your help then,
if I don't think of you then,
in the heat of the moment,
please don't hold it against me.
When time comes for reflection I will think of you again with thanks.
