Prayer of Thankfulness

"God thank you for making the trees, and my mom, and my sisters, and the whole entire world, and make everyone who is hurting better Jesus." -Andy (5)

As I listen to my 5 year old son pray this morning listing all the things He is thankful for, and asking You to help everyone, but him I am embarrassed at my own selfishness.

Lord, please give us the grateful heart of a child. I always seem to be asking for You to get me out of this problem, and save me from that one, and oh please bring me that thing I've been waiting for soon. 

Today, help us instead of praying for what we want and don't have, give us eyes to see what we do have... -In Jesus name, Amen. 


List 3 things you are thankful to God for... GO!

Prayer for Safe Harbor

Father, help us to stop "muscling it out on our own"!  Today we  surrender all of our weakness and fear to You. For Your word says:


My help and glory are in God

    —granite-strength and safe-harbor-God—

So trust him absolutely, people;

    lay your lives on the line for him.

    God is a safe place to be. Psalm 62:7 (MSG)


OH today we need that granite strength and safe harbor Lord! We don't want to question whether or not You can help care about our daily lives, rescue us, and comfort us.  WE want to KNOW that You will because we've built up a history of relying on You completely.  Increase our FAITH!!  

I am Yours.  -In Jesus' name, Amen.
