Prayer of Gratitude

Heavenly Father,

I come before You with a heart full of gratitude. I thank You for Your love and grace that surrounds me each and every day. I am grateful for the blessings You have bestowed upon me. For the provision You have given and for the protection You provide.

Thank You for Your Son, Jesus Christ, and for the sacrifice He made for my salvation. I am grateful for the forgiveness and freedom that comes through Him. I thank You for the gift of the Holy Spirit, and for the guidance, wisdom, and strength He provides.

I am grateful for the way You work in my life, for the ways You shape and mold me to become more like Your Son. I am grateful for my family and friends, for the love and support they provide. I thank You for the community You have placed me in and for the opportunities to serve and love others.

Thank You for my job, my home, and the abundance You have provided. I am grateful for the beauty of nature and for the peace and joy that comes from spending time with You. I am also grateful for the trials and struggles I have faced, and for the ways they have strengthened my faith and brought me closer to You.

Lord, I am eternally grateful for all that You have done, all that You are doing, and all that You will do in my life. I praise Your name and give You all the glory.

This is my prayer in Jesus’ name, Amen.
