Prayer of Thanks­giv­ing

Cebu Daily News - - FAITH -

Lord I come be­fore You, de­sir­ing to pro­vide thanks. Fa­ther, I have so much to be thank­ful for, things un­seen and seen, that You have done in my life. Lord, mostly I am thank­ful for the re­la­tion­ship that I have with You. You know the times I have been un­grate­ful, held I’ll thoughts to­ward You and my fel­low hu­mans. You know the times I com­plain and grum­ble about life and its cir­cum­stances, about suf­fer­ing, go­ing through what seem end­less tri­als and tribu­la­tions. Even yield­ing my mem­bers to un­holy deeds.

Yet God You are and al­ways will be there with me, even when it seems like I am for­ever in the wilder­ness, run­ning fur­ther and fur­ther from You, You, my God are there guid­ing me back to Your lov­ing arms.

I am thank­ful Lord for ev­ery­thing that You al­low to cross my path. Thank­ful for the de­ci­sions that You al­low me to make and the lessons that come from these de­ci­sions.

I’m thank­ful, Lord, that I do not have to live un­der con­dem­na­tion any­more, that You have truly set me free, that I am a new cre­ation that I need not live un­der the law any­more. Lord, words do not ex­press my thank­ful­ness.

For Your mighty power is at work in me, trans­form­ing me, re­new­ing my mind.

To You Lord be­long thanks eter­nal.

In Je­sus’ name, amen.
