A Prayer Of Gratitude
"Pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the
will of God in Christ for you. Do not quench the Spirit."
1 Thessalonians 5:17-19
You have shown us the beauty of Your handiwork each day
through creation and through Your image in others. Our only
response is to worship and adore You with hearts of gratitude
for Your love and grace. Holy Spirit, strengthen us daily through
our communion of prayer with You. Lead us to pray fervently
for our church to be the light in the culture of our time. Give
us grateful hearts even when we face difficult trials, knowing
You have a greater purpose and divine will in the midst of it all.
Spirit of the Living God, nudge us to give thanks and praise for
all You are doing in our lives. Lord Jesus, teach us to pray for
our leaders daily, giving thanks for the way You use them to
shepherd our souls in accordance with Your truth in reverent
fear of the Lord. Remind us even in our struggles with each
other to be grateful for our bond as members of the Body of
Christ. May we follow Jesus, our Great Intercessor, as the center
of our lives. In His great name we pray. Amen.
