A Prayer for a Thankful Heart


Father God, it is to you I come with a humble heart Lord, teach me to offer you a heart of thanksgiving and praise in all my daily experiences of life.   Teach me to be joyful always, to pray continually and to give thanks in all my circumstances.   I accept them as Your will for my life (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18).   I long to bring pleasure to Your heart daily.   Break the power of the enemy in my life.   Defeat Him through my sacrifice of praise.   Change my outlook and attitude into one of joyful contentment with my present circumstances.


Jesus, I want to be like You who obeyed the Father without complaint.   You embraced the chains of humanity when You walked this earth.   Convict me whenever I complain or compare myself with others.  Give me Your attitude of humility and thankful acceptance.   I want to be like the Apostle Paul who learned contentment in every circumstance.   I choose to continually offer You a sacrifice of praise, the fruit of lips that give praise to Your name (Hebrews 13:15).   I long to bring a smile to Your face.   Teach me the power of a thankful heart.   I know that Your truth dwells in a thankful heart.


I will give thanks to the LORD because of His righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.   O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!   You have set your glory above the heavens” (Psalm 7:17-18:1).   In Jesus’ name, Amen.
