Lord, there are marvelous things that I do not know, nor can I comprehend.

Lord, things that happen in my life, and things that happen in my friends lives.

Lord, I desire to be thankful, to appreciate everything that comes across my path.

Lord, so often life hurts, I get angry — upset, I do not understand, yet Lord You ask me to be thankful for everything, and have faith – thank You.

Lord, help me to be thankful, when the rains come on the just and the unjust, that You care so much about me, to chasten, to build character and godliness in me, to be a mirrored reflection of Your Son to reach others.

Lord, I thank You for mercy, for the hunger for righteousness, for forgiveness, for purity, for providing for my needs.

Lord, I thank You for prayer, That I can come before You and call You Father.

That I can cast my burdens on You.

Lord, I thank You for my heart, the treasure and light You placed in there — the Holy Spirit.

Lord, help me to endeavor, to be thankful for everything.

Lord, it seems most of the time, what happens is about me.

Lord, I thank you that You gently remind me that the things are not about me, however, my life and what happens is more about You, Your will, and Your Kingdom.

Lord, I thank You, I praise You. Lord, in You do I find strength and courage to go on.

Lord, I thank You for the author and finisher of my faith – Jesus Christ and that in You is hope everlasting.

Lord, I thank You for the blood of Jesus, Your precious lamb.

Thank You Lord God!

In Jesus’ name, amen.

~ Prayer of thanks based on 1 Corinthians 2, Matthew 5-6, Hebrews 12

Help me Lord to wake each morning with the eyes of my heart looking to Jesus and the thoughts of my mind to be focused on You.

I pray that I may hand over all the duties of the day into Your hands so that Your hand is leading and guiding in all the decisions that I make.

Enable me to approach the day with an eagerness to do those things that are pleasing to You; a willingness to tackle the difficulties that may cross my path today and wisdom to speak the truth in love.

Give me patience with all I may meet today; keep me from foolish words and may I exhibit self-control and wisdom in all the necessities and needs that I may encounter as the day progresses.

And keep me in perfect peace throughout today as my mind is let stayed on You, I ask this in Jesus name. Amen.

Dear heavenly Father, I pray that you would give Your servant a discerning heart, an honest and true heart that seeks to put You first in all things – a heart of understanding and a genuine desire for a deeper knowledge of You.

Lord it is my desire that I walk worthy in You and that I may know You more and love You better – Give me thirst for Your Word of truth, for in it is life and health and wholeness – so that I may live a life that is holy unto the Lord, a life that is separated from the ways of the world.

Give me the strength, the courage and the power to make the right choices in my life and guide my thoughts by the power of Your Holy Spirit each day I pray. Lord I know that You desire truth in the inward parts and I pray that You would mould the inner secrets of my heart to be laid bare before You, so that I may grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus as I draw ever closer to You day by day, in Jesus name I pray, Amen.

Trusting in your goodness and great mercy, Lord I come:

sick – I come to my Saviour;

hungry and thirsty – to the well of Life;

needy – to the King of Heaven.

Dear Lord, at the start of this day, help me to keep the eyes of my heart on You and may I not sacrifice what is really important for what I perceive to be urgent.

Help me not to be too busy to forget to look at all the beauty that surrounds me in the world that You have created.

Help me not to be so much in a hurry that I miss listening to Your still small voice.

Keep me I pray from “busy-ness” and may I draw ever closer to You in Jesus’ name I pray.

In the rising of the sun and its setting, in the whiteness of the moon and its seasons, in the infinity of space and its shining stars you are God and we bless you.

May we know the harmony of heaven in the relationships of earth and may we know the expanse of its mystery within us.

~ Harmony of Heaven, John Philip Newell, Celtic Treasure: Daily Scripture and Prayer, 2005, 18

How I thank and praise You for the everlasting life that You have given to me by Your wonderful grace and love.

May I grow day by day to be more like You, full of compassion and kindness. Saturate my heart with Your love so that I may love You more with every passing breath – my Jesus.

Thank you for Your Holy Spirit Who is making me to be more like YOU Lord Jesus. I want to reflect Your grace and Your beauty in thought, word and deed.

I ask that I may devote my time and heart to reflect on all You are and all You have done for me – so that You are magnified more and more in my life – so that the beauty of my Lord Jesus may be seen and reflect in men.


A Prayer for Godly Grace
