The Lord afflicts us at times; but it is always a thousand times less than we deserve, and much less than many of our fellow-creatures are suffering around us. Let us therefore pray for grace to be humble, thankful, and patient.
-John Newton (1725-1807)

Today’s Prayer Topic: Give Thanks
Lord, I come to you today to give thanks. You have blessed my life in so many ways and I can never thank You enough. Thank You for my (home, my job, my spouse, my kids, my family, my pet(s), my health), for all of these things I am truly grateful. I know I will always fall short of the glory of You, Lord, but I pray that with these blessings and the gifts you have bestowed upon me, that I may use them to please You. Lord, use me in ways I can never imagine. You have done so much for me in my life, beyond any stress, worry, or problems, I know that You are in control. You complete me, Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins, because I know I don’t deserve it. Your never ending love is enough, Your timing is enough, Your strength is enough; Thank You. In Your precious name I pray, Amen.
