Life! Yes, you should be thankful for life. I know you may be reading this and thinking, "I AM thankful for my life." I'm glad that you are but you'd be amazed at the number of people who are not.
I've dedicated this week to be more conscious about showing gratitude and being thankful. As we go through this Thanksgiving week I want each of us to reflect on all of the things and people that we have to be thankful for. I intentionally thought about this yesterday and woke up this morning thankful for life. Although I woke up to a busier than normal Monday I am still grateful for my life and I hope you are grateful for yours.
I wanted to take this time for us to pray together before you go to bed. Before you read this prayer I want you to really think about all of the great things that God has blessed you with. Then think about all of the great people God has blessed your life with. Tell Him thank you and let's pray.
Heavenly Father, I thank you for my life. I thank you for your presence in my life. God, I want to give you thanks for this day, this night, this very hour. I thank you that I am alive and well. I thank you for the people you have blessed my life with. I pray for them and ask that you continue to bless them. Thank you for all that I have. You have been so kind. I can't think of anything that I needed that you have not provided. I praise you for protecting my life, for saving my life, and for blessing my life. I pray that my life will continue to be a testimony of your goodness and your grace and I pray that you will be glorified through my life. Thank you, Lord. In Jesus name. Amen.
Rest Well Dear Hearts.
