Prayer of Thanks

Heavenly Father, I thank you for my life and everything you have bestowed upon me and upon all people, this day and every day. I thank you for the good and bad, the understanding of forgiveness, and your holy power, without which we would have nothing. I thank you this day for all your blessings, your gifts, your never ending love for us. Although we all are sinners, I ask you to forgive me every day for what I might have done wrong, that I might not have noticed. Even though we all come short of the glory of God, I thank you for the sacrifice of your only son Jesus Christ for all our sins. You and only you know us Father and you know if our hearts are true. So once again, I thank you with all my heart and soul. In the name of Christ I pray, Amen.

And finally, may the grace of Christ our Savior, and the Father's boundless love, with the Holy Spirit's favor, rest upon me, and all of us, from above. Thus may we abide in union, with each other and the Lord, and possess, in sweet communion, joys which earth cannot afford. Amen.

*****

Dear Lord, just as each new day brings its own problems, so does each day show our need for You. ... Oh Lord, open my eyes to see that I need to come to You daily for guidance. I need to come to You in prayer and to study Your Word, in order to be able to recognize Your leading. ... You have said that man does not live by bread alone. ... Forgive us all, for too often we have wanted to go our own way, to "do our own thing." Remind each of us that while enthusiasm is laudable, wisdom is also necessary. Help us, Lord, to seek Your will and Your guidance each morning to be ready for whatever the day brings.

In Jesus' name I pray.

Amen.

Lord, I ask for the power of your Spirit in my life that I may live in such a way that I show kindness in another’s trouble, and courage in my own. Amen.

“A Prayer For Pleasing God”

Father, I make it my goal to please You. So many goals I make reap rewards that last only a season, but when I set goals for righteous living the rewards last not only for this life, but for all of eternity. In setting my goals help me to be willing to lay aside that which hinders and the sin that so easily entangles so that I will reap a harvest of righteousness and peace. I want my primary goal to be that which pleases You, and the only way I can learn about that is to read and heed the Scriptures. My overall goal is to persevere to the very end of this life so that when I enter the other side I hear these words of commendation, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” Amen.

You should think of us as Christ's servants, who have been put in charge of God's secret truths. The one thing required of such a servant is that he be faithful to his master. 1 Corinthians 4:1–2, TEV

Dear Father in heaven, open our hearts to see and feel how our lives have been blest. Open our hearts to your blessings so that we may look forward in thankfulness and joy to what lies ahead. Grant that we may be faithful to what we have received from you and never again lose ourselves in the passing moment. May we hold to all you have brought to our hearts from eternity, that your name may be honored and our lives shaped anew in Jesus Christ. Give us courage to overcome the evils in life and to look with joy and confident expectation to the future, when the powers of your kingdom will be ever more clearly revealed. Amen.

*****

Dear Father, give me the wisdom to be patient and kind. Help me understand that sometimes people struggle to be understanding and forgiving.
