Thank You Lord that You know all my needs and necessities of life, and thank You that You delight to provide for each of Your children day by day. I praise You that are willing and able to make all grace abound towards each one of Your children - so that we have all sufficiency in all things and have Your 0ver- abundance for every good work.
Teach me Lord to pray for all my needs with a grateful and thankful heart and, keep me from using prayer as a lever to get my own way, but rather may I come to see prayer as an opportunity to pray into Your will, so that Your will for my life becomes my own will and prayer and petition.
And Lord, when I pray for the things that I think I need.. help me not to miss Your alternative and better provision. Give me discernment to see and gratefully accept all that You have purposed for me with a heart that overflows with thankful praise for Your goodness and grace towards me.
Teach me I pray to pray according to You my gracious Giver and Provider, before I look for the gifts that You are so willing to drop into my lap. Thank You that You are my Father and thank You for your never-ending and never-failing love for me – teach me to love You Lord as You deserve for You alone are worthy, in Jesus name I pray,
