Prayer Of A Grateful Heart

Thank You, Lord Jesus, for loving me so much that You would come to earth and suffer and die so that I might be saved by grace through faith in You. Words cannot express the depth of gratitude and love that I have, knowing that You love me so very dearly.
As I look at the vastness of Your creation and realise the enormity of Your Person, I am astonished that You should care for me. How can it be that You died for me when I was dead in my sins and at enmity with God? 
Thank You, that You provide for me day by day and that when I am weak and fearful You hold me up. Thank You that You have promised to be with me always. Lord Jesus, there is no end to Your goodness and there is no end to my love and gratitude for all You are to me. Praise Your holy name for ever and ever,

How I thank You Lord Jesus, and bless Your holy name.

Thank You, Lord, for my parents who have been so supportive of me, not only in my early years, but also as I have grown older.

All of whom have been a blessing in their own special way.

I especially thank You for my spouse and the joy of seeing our own children born into the world and growing up into responsible adults. And Lord, for the miracle of seeing the birth of my own precious grandchildren. What a joy this has been, and how I praise You for all Your goodness and mercy to me.

Keep us all in a bond of unity, and may Christ be lifted up in the heart of each one. I ask this in Jesus' name,

Parent’s Prayer Of Gratitude On Graduation Day

Heavenly Father, the past few years seem to have sped by and here we are preparing for the graduation of our precious child, who not so long ago was a helpless babe in our arms.
Thank You for this child that You gave us to care for and nurture, and as they face the unknown future we pray that You would draw very close to them and lead and guide in the days that lie ahead.
Our own hearts are a mixture of contrasting emotions, pride in their achievement, and concern for their future well-being. But we do pray that this graduation ceremony would be a special time of celebration and that nothing would mar the joy and excited anticipation we are feeling, despite the inevitable tinges of apprehension.
As our child reaches this important milestone in their life, we ask for Your continued presence to lead and to guide in all things. And as they step out into the unknown world of new responsibilities and life-challenges, we finally hand them completely over into Your safe-keeping, and ask that Your presence will accompany them. May they continue to grow in grace and draw ever closer to You with each passing day. In Jesus' name,

Gratitude Lord for the end of her life.
