Heavenly Father, I am filled with awe when I start to realise the unfathomable, unsearchable, incalculable, boundless riches of Christ which I have received by grace through faith in Him. As I think back over my life I have nothing that could commend me to You and by right I should be condemned to eternal separation from You.. By right, I too am the worst of all sinners, and am not worthy to be called Your son.. and yet while I was still a sinner Christ died for me and You searched me out and saved me. Praise Your holy name and thank You in Christ's name. May I live and work to Your praise and glory through time and into eternity in Jesus name, AMEN.

Thank You that I am part of that redeemed company, who in the ages to come will show forth Your immeasurable glory and over-abounding grace - to Your praise and glory. Thank You in Jesus name, AMEN.

Prayer Of Gratitude For Love

Thank You Lord for loving me so much that You sent Your only begotten Son to die on my behalf on a cruel cross and take upon Himself my sins. Thank You that He identified with my sinfulness so that I might be identified with His righteousness, by grace through faith in Christ. How grateful I am that while I was still a lost sinner Christ died for me.

Praise Your holy name, for You are a good God and Your loving-kindness endures forever and I will be eternally grateful that You are my God and I am Your child.
 
Thank You that You are my helper and healer. Thank You that You are my refuge and strength and  thank You that You have surrounded me with people who love me dearly.. and whom I love too. Lord I do not deserve any of Your grace and goodness and yet day by day You pour new and rich mercies into my lap and cover me with Your blessings. Praise God that You are the Rock of my Salvation,
