A PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING UNTO GOD FOR ALL
Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to gather with family and friends and reflect on the blessings of the Lord. Many of us experience renewed hope and faith during the Thanksgiving holiday, because we turn our eyes onto what is most important. What if we spent time each day in giving thanks through prayer? “Lord, teach me to offer You a heart of thanksgiving and praise in all my daily experiences of life. Teach me to be joyful always, to pray continually and to give thanks in all my circumstances. I accept them as Your will for my life. 16 Rejoice evermore. 17 Pray without ceasing. 18 In everything give thanks: for this is the Will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 1 Thess. 5:16-18.
Father, I want to thank You for Your Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, Who laid down His life on my behalf and all of God’s people. He has given me the opportunity to believe in Him and receive eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His Only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:16-17.
Jesus, I want to be like You Who obeyed the Father without complaint. You embraced the chains of humanity when You walked this earth. Convict me whenever I complain or compare myself with others. Give me Your attitude of humility and thankful acceptance. I want to be like the Apostle Paul who learned contentment in every circumstance. I choose to continually offer You a sacrifice of praise, the fruit of my lips that give praise to Your Name.
By Him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His Name.
REMINDER: A PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING UNTO GOD FOR ALL!!!
