Prayer of a Thankful Heart
Thank you Lord for this day,
May I glorify you in every way.

Thank you for the food we eat,
For the clothes on our backs, the shoes on our feet.

Thank you for all the memories of good times,
That bring a smile to my face when they cross my mind.

Thank you for my friends and family,
Even on the days when they test my sanity.

Thank you for your mercy and grace,
For the joy in my heart that can’t be replaced.

Thank you for your promises and protection.
With you in my life I can triumph over any affliction.
