I come before you with a heart of gratitude during this wonderful Thanksgiving season. Oh the wonder and awesomeness of your Name in all the earth! You gave it all my Rose of Sharon, my Lily of the Valley, my Prince of Peace, so that we might live!
Great is your faithfulness to me and my family, throughout this year, oh Lord! Your grace has known no bounds. Your mercy has been unconditional. And your blessings have been new every morning.
So, I will bless you, oh Lord, with all my heart, with all my soul and with all my might for you wake me each day with a renewed heart. Continue to work in me (and my family) a heart of gratitude. And thank you for helping us to see and appreciate the daily miracles that you have provided for us.
Thank you for your divine protection and blood covering, for you see our flaws, our missteps, even our sins and yet you still love us. You love us, in spite of our imperfections. I cannot fathom that kind of love, so I thank you that you never, never stop loving us.
In the rough times, you turn our mourning into dancing and you give us beauty for ashes. You make a way for us when there seems to be no way. And you continue to lead us in the path of righteousness in this journey of life. Thank you.
Even in the midst of trials, threats of pandemics and rumors of wars, you are the anchor for our souls; you are the calm in the midst of the storms and you are the lighthouse that guides us to calm waters. In this time of political, racial/ethnic upheaval, your hand guides us, protects us and provides us with the wisdom and insight that we need. And I thank you.
So at this time of thanksgiving, I bless you with everything that is within me, Lord. I lift you up and praise your Almighty Name as you continue to cover, protect and lead me and my family. I pray this prayer in Your Almighty Name, Jesus. Amen.
