Prayer for Gratitude

Heavenly Father,

I come before You today with a grateful heart. I thank You for Your constant love and presence in my life. I thank You for the blessings You have bestowed upon me, both big and small. I thank You for Your protection and provision.

I am grateful for the gift of salvation through Your Son, Jesus Christ. I am grateful for the forgiveness of my sins and the promise of eternal life.

I thank You for the people You have placed in my life – my family, friends, and community. I am grateful for the opportunities I have to serve and love others in Your name.

Help me to continue to grow in gratitude, and to show my thanks through my actions and attitudes.

I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. Amen.
