A Thanksgiving Prayer

Heavenly Father,

We come before You today with hearts full of gratitude and thanksgiving. We thank You for Your many blessings and for Your faithfulness to us. We are grateful for Your love, mercy, and grace.

We thank You for the gift of salvation and for the opportunity to have a personal relationship with You. We thank You for providing for our daily needs, for the beauty of Your creation, and for the joy of Your presence. We also thank You for the love and support of our family and friends, as well as for the gift of life and the privilege of serving You.

We humbly ask that You continue to bless us and guide us in the coming year. Help us to be faithful in our service to You and to others. Grant us wisdom, strength, and courage to follow Your will.

In Jesus’ Name we pray, Amen.
