How I thank You heavenly Father for my dear, dear grandmother. She has always been such a special support and encouragement to me, especially as I was growing up and finding out about life and living… and Lord, she has given me so much of her gentle wisdom and good advice… never being judgemental, but always fair and kind.
Thank You for the wonderful example she has been throughout my life of a godly woman who loves Jesus first and foremost, and for the unique way that she lovingly gently nudges me to turn to You, in all the circumstances of my life. Thank You for placing her in my life. Thank You that I have had the opportunity of learning so much from her – for her knowledge of the Scriptures and her delight to turn to You in pray, day by day.
Lord now that she is getting older, I pray that You would keep Your loving arms around her and protect her from harm. Guard and guide her – protect her and provide all that she needs and draw here ever closer to Yourself – in Jesus name I pray,
“I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,”

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.
How thankful I am Lord that You searched me out and found me and brought me back into Your family, even though I was dead in my sins and at enmity with You. 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,
“For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.”
