30 Days of Thankful Prayers: Day 12: Multiplication

Father, I am so amazed and thankful for Your power to multiply our meager possessions. For if Your son can take a little boy's lunch and feed thousands, I wonder what You can do with the storehouses that we have.  

"Jesus took the five loaves and two fish, looked up toward heaven, and asked God's blessing..." Mark 6:41

God, teach us to do as Jesus did, and take our possessions, our pantries, and our bank accounts, and lift them up toward heaven. We ask for Your blessing to multiply them.  God, we don't ask this to "feed" ourselves, but to "feed" Your hungry people.  -In Jesus name, Amen

30 Days of Thankful Prayers: Day 5, People

Life is not about the stuff we are accumulating that fills up our closets, but the people that fill up the seats around our dinner table.    

Father, I am beyond thankful for the family and friends You have put in my life that sit at my table, eat all my food, and fill my home with laughter.

Help us to never take our family and friends for granted.  Help us to find ways to show them how grateful we are for their love and support. -In Jesus name, Amen.
