Prayer For A Thankful Heart.

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 You 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 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 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,
