Thanksgiving is the deepest expression of our gratitude. Thanksgiving prayer is the deepest expression our gratitude to God for His Grace.
When you come before God with Thanksgiving prayer, it’s like sweet perfumed incense that fills His presence. Oh how God loves to receive from His saints prayers of thanksgiving, it’s a sweet smelling sacrifice before Him.
Father of life, you are the almighty God, the unchanging God that can change all things. All good and perfect gifts comes from you, you are the source of love, life and holiness. You are the God who alone does great wonders, what a mighty God you are. God, You cannot be equalled or rivalled; you are the self-existing and uncreated God.
Today, I give you thanks for your life in me, for I live, move and have my being in you. I give you thanks for your good hands upon my life, for with them you shield my head in the days of battle. God, I give you thanks for my faults and weaknesses that you forgive, showing me your mercy. I give you thanks for the righteousness of Christ that you input in me thereby giving me access into your presence.
Oh what a great God you are, your works to me and in me are wonderful and glorious. I thank you because only a father like you would love a child like me in spite of me. Thank you for daily transforming me through your word.
Everlasting father, I choose to thank you for both the good times and the seemingly bad times I face, knowing that through it all, you have continually worked out you good purpose for my life. Thank you for the things I have gained and the things I have lost, you are the reason I haven’t lost all and the reason I will gain all.
No matter what comes my way LORD, you will always be my God. I thank you today that you are more than enough for me. As you hold my hands, you take me through the day and I will return victoriously, giving you the praise. Amen.
Prayer of Gratitude
Thank you, Lord, for all the blessings you have sent to me in my life. You have provided me with more than I could ever have ask or even imagine. You have given me the best friends and family who care and help me in good or bad times. Lord, you thank you for keeping me safe during my life journey and for protecting me from bad situations. You always help me to make the right decisions, you speak to me in so many ways directly or through other people.
I am so grateful to you for all the blessings you gave to me. Lord, don’t let me forget to show my gratitude in my prayers. Thank you, Lord. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
Prayer of Thanksgiving for Grace
Thank you, my Lord, for the grace you are giving for me every day of my life. I understand that I don’t deserve what I receive from you, that you give me all the things in advance. I am weak and fail so often, but your grace is endless, and I understand that without your help I can do nothing alone. Your grace makes me feel so grateful and loving not only for you, Lord but for the all your people I meet in my life. It gives joy to all the situations of my life. Lord, you are the only source of the grace, so teach me to live according to your will. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
The importance of the Thanksgiving prayer
It is a prayer that ushers us daily into the presence of God. Psalms 100:4 “Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name” Thanksgiving is the password. Irrespective of what you are going through, you don’t come before Him with complains and murmuring, God is not glorified in your complaint rather, he takes delight in your thanksgiving.
When you give thanks, you proclaim and publish the wonderful works of God both in creation and also especially in your life, and this you need to do daily, for, He daily loads you with benefits says the bible. Psalm 26:7 ”that I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works” When you thank Him for what He’s done, He is moved to do more for you.
When you offer thanksgiving prayers to God, especially when you are going through hard times (for it is more difficult to praise God when we can’t trace Him) that thanksgiving becomes a sacrifice, a very costly one indeed. Such sacrifice produces strength from God, and ultimately orchestrate you deliverance, Paul and Silas are perfect example (Acts 16:24-26). Another example is that of Jehoshaphat and the people of Judah in 2 Chronicles 20.
Finally, it is right and understandable that we should say the Thanksgiving prayer for God either in the good or in the bad times. Give thanks to God daily and watch Him answer you in amazing ways.
Have you THANKED HIM TODAY? Come on, He eagerly awaits your thanksgiving, He longs to hear what you have to say to about Him, and He is ready to ride on the wings of your thanksgiving to show Himself mighty in your behalf.
