Prayer for Daily Gratitude and Thankfulness
Heavenly Father, my day-to-day routine is so busy. So much so that I sometimes forget to stop to thank you for all that is good in my life. My blessings are many and my heart is filled with gratefulness for the gift of living, for the ability to love and be loved, for the opportunity to see the everyday wonders of creation. I want to thank you, for those things in my life that are less than I would hope them to be. Sometimes life is very hard, and it’s a struggle to keep my head above water. Things that seem challenging, unfair, or difficult often hurts. When my heart feels stretched and empty, and pools of tears form in my weary eyes, still I will rejoice that You are as near to me as my next breath and that in the midst of turbulence, I am growing and learning. In the silence of my soul, I thank you most of all for Your unconditional love.
Prayer for the Gratitude of God’s Unfailing Love
Lord, I am so thankful for the relationship that I have with You. Precious Lord, You initiated this relationship by what Your Son endeavored to accomplish, paying the price for my sins and those of my brothers and sisters, thus redeeming and reconciling me.
You know the times I have been ungrateful, held ill thoughts toward You and others. You know the times I complain and grumble about life and its circumstances, but You love me regardless even when I’m ungrateful. I am thankful Lord for everything that You allow to cross my path. I am thankful for the decisions that You allow me to make, and the life lessons that come from these decisions. I’m thankful, Lord, that I do not have to live under condemnation anymore, and that You have truly set me free! Amen.
Prayer for God’s Thanksgiving
God of all blessings, source of all life, giver of all grace in all things, I want to thank you for the gift of life, for the breath that sustains life, for the food of this earth that nurtures life, and for the love of family and friends without which there would be little happiness in life. I thank you for the beauty of creation of this great Earth, for the joy that the ear may hear, for the unknown that we cannot behold filling the universe with wonder, and for the expanse of space that draws us beyond the definitions of our selves. Everything in my life, and the life that surrounds me was drawn and created by Your own hand. For this, I am grateful. Amen.
Prayer for Gratitude Towards Our Heavenly Father
I am so grateful for everything that You have given me. Thank you so much for the loved ones in my life, and for the many ways in which I am cared for and supported on a day to day basis. Thank you for the many ways I can serve and give to others. Thank you for the rich tapestry of colors throughout creation, for the beauty that is all around me, and for the skies and the ever-changing environment that surrounds me. My heart is so grateful for all that You have bestowed me within my life. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. It is in Your name that I sing my praises!

I pray that You will fill my day with love and sustenance. And may I remember at the end of each of my day’s, to thank you for all that has been placed in my life. In Your precious name I pray these things!
Prayer of Thankfulness for Blessings Received
My Precious Father, how I praise and thank You for Your many and great blessings that You have showered over us all, despite our foolish ways and sinful pride. How great You are, and what a gracious God that You should care for me despite my manner towards you and others at times. Thank You Father for Your unconditional and everlasting love. May I grow more and more to be like You. I ask that You continue to guide and teach me in all that I say and do, and that I may do all according to Your will. I ask You to continue to pour our Your bountiful blessings and mercy on myself and my whole family. Amen.
Prayer of Thankfulness for the Blessing of Jesus Christ
Our dear heavenly Father, may Your name be glorified for You alone are worthy, for You looked down on our pitiful world and chose to give Your only Beloved Son to be the perfect sacrifice to pay the price for the sins of all of Your people. There are no words that are sufficient enough to praise and bless You for all that You have poured over the heads of Your children, and into the hearts of those that love and trust You. You alone are worthy of our thanksgiving and praise, and we bless Your name forever and ever, amen.
“Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe.” Hebrews 12:28
“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18
“For all of this, Your Excellencey, we are very grateful to you.” Acts 24:3
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.
