Pray this thanksgiving prayer of gratitude today with me:
“Dear Heavenly Father,
We come to You in Jesus’ name.
Father, we love You. Thank You so much for loving us, for taking care of us, and for blessing us.
Thank You for sustaining us and keeping us alive another year. Thank You so much for this time to come together with our family, and thank You that we get to be with You every day.
Father, thank You for Jesus. Thank You for sending Your sweet Son to die for us. Thank You that Jesus ever lives to make intercession for us, and thank You for Your watchcare over us and kindness to us, which were only made possible by the blood of Jesus.
Father, we thank You for the trials of this past year.
Your Word says to count it all joy when we have tests and trials. So Father, even though we know You didn’t send all these trials, we turn them around for our good by saying “THANK YOU” right now.
Thank You that You have promised to work all things together for our good, for we love You and are called according to Your purpose. Thank You, Father, and we do ask that You would work all things out for our good today. Thank You.
Father, thank You for providing our basic needs today and every day.
You woke us up this morning with clothes to wear and food to eat. Thank You, Father. You put air in our lungs and breath in our nostrils. Thank You.
Lord, You give us friendship, family, a church home, and provision every single day. We have been remiss in not thanking You more, Father; and we’re sorry about that. But we want to take this opportunity to say “Thank You” right now, Lord. Thank You.
Father, thank You for blessing us exceeding abundantly above all we could ever dare to ask, hope, or think.
So often we tend to look at what we don’t have, but You are worthy of more than that, Abba. You have given us so much. Thank You for bringing us so far.
Thank You for always being with us. Thank You that the same Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in us. Thank You for making us the righteousness of God in Christ. Thank You.
Father, this year You have carried us on Your wings. Thank You.
We haven’t always understood the next steps or where we were going, but You have always had a plan and a purpose. We thank You for lifting us up on eagle’s wings and causing us to walk and not get weary; to run and not faint.
We also offer this thanksgiving prayer to thank You and bless You for unexpected surprises this year, Father.
Thank You for all the happy surprises You have given us. ( List them here! ) Thank You for showing up in unexpected ways. Thank You for blessing us in amazing, miraculous ways.
Every time we needed You this year, Father, You were right there. You have always been right on time, and we thank You. When the enemy came against us like a flood, Your Spirit raised up His standard against him.
You have defeated the devil on every side, Father, and we thank You that Christ is both the Victor and our Victory.
We thank You for rebuking the devourer for our sake this year. Thank You for defeating the enemy every time he tried to take us down. Thank You for opening up the windows of Heaven for us this year, and for pouring us out such a blessing that Your provision has overflowed all our needs.
Thank You, Father, for bringing us this far.
Thank You that You will never leave us nor forsake us. Thank You that You are good, and Your mercy endures forever. Thank You for watching over us, protecting us, and preserving us. Thank You.
We praise You, Heavenly Father. Thank You for the miracles You have done, day in and day out.
And we thank You in advance for what You’re going to do; what You’re about to do. And we pray that this next year will be the most blessed, amazing, and prosperous year we have ever had.
Thank You, Abba Father. Thank You that You are good, and Your mercies are new every day. Thank You that Your compassions, they fail not; You change not; great is Your faithfulness.
In Jesus’ holy and precious name we pray, amen.”
