Dear Lord – Thank You!



I continue today with the seasonal theme of thanksgiving.


Yours, O Lord, is the greatness,

The power and the glory,

The victory and the majesty;

For all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours;

Yours is the kingdom, O Lord,

And You are exalted as head over all.


Both riches and honour come from You,

And You reign over all.

In Your hand is power and might;

In Your hand it is to make great

And to give strength to all.


Now therefore, our God,

We thank You

And praise Your glorious name.

(1 Chronicles 29:11-13)





Father God,

You have said in your Word that we should enter your holy presence through the gates of thanksgiving and the courts of praise.

I am so grateful that I can come into your awesome presence with boldness, because you have made me worthy. I thank you that no matter how many times I fall short of your standards, you love and accept me unconditionally.

Dear Father God, I ask that you cause gratitude to you, for your undeserved favour and mercy, to effervesce continually from my inner being. I ask that you will take great pleasure in the fruit of my lips and from my thanksgiving sacrifices. I pray they will delight your heart, ascending to your throne like sweet smelling incense. Amen.



None is more impoverished than the one who has no gratitude. Gratitude is a currency that we can mint for ourselves, and spend without fear of bankruptcy.
