7 Good Prayers for Gratefulness

The power of gratitude is an important part of the Lord’s Prayer. There are many ways to give thanks and develop gratefulness to God in your life. From simple prayers to personal devotion, here is a look at some great prayers for gratefulness that will inspire you.

Prayer #1

Thank you, Lord, for the blessings you have bestowed on my life. You have provided me with more than I could ever have imagined. You have surrounded me with people who always look out for me. You have given me family and friends who bless me every day with kind words and actions. They lift me up in ways that keep my eyes focused on you and make my spirit soar.

Also, thank you, Lord, for keeping me safe. You protect me from those things that seem to haunt others. You help me make better choices, and you have provided me with advisors that help me with the difficult decisions. You speak to me in so many ways so that I always know you are here.

And Lord, I am so grateful for keeping those around me safe and loved. I hope that you provide me with the ability and sense to show them every day how much they matter. I hope that you give me the ability to give to them the same kindness they have provided to me. I am just so grateful for all of your blessings in my life, Lord. I pray that you remind me of just how lucky I am, and that you never allow me to forget to show my gratitude in prayer and returned kind acts. Thank you, Lord. In your name, Amen.

Prayer #2

Lord, Today I am going to think of something to say “Thank you” for that I have never thanked you for before! I love you, Lord, Amen

Thank you, Lord, for your Word. It inspires me, motivates me, instructs me, corrects me, and comforts me. Your Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. Psalm 119:105

Prayer #4

Loving Lord, As I express my gratitude to you in prayer, may it be a pleasing, joyful sound to you.

Thank you, Lord, for your love. It brings me acceptance and significance.

Thank you, Lord, for your truth. It brings me guidance and direction.

Thank you, Lord, for your mercy. It brings me help and comfort.

Thank you, Lord, for your faithfulness. It brings me stability and strength.

Thank you, Lord, for your kindness. It brings me daily provision and sustenance.

Thank you, Lord, for your beauty displayed in the earth. It brings me joy and delight.

Thank you, Lord, for your way of redemption – the cross. It brings me salvation and regeneration.
Amen

Prayer #5

Gracious God, in the busy-ness of my day, I sometimes forget to stop to thank you for all that is good in my life.

My blessings are many and my heart is filled with gratefulness for the gift of living, for the ability to love and be loved, for the opportunity to see the everyday wonders of creation, for sleep and water, for a mind that thinks and a body that feels.

I thank you, too, for those things in my life that are less than I would hope them to be. Things that seem challenging, unfair, or difficult. When my heart feels stretched and empty, and pools of tears form in my weary eyes, still I rejoice that you are as near to me as my next breath and that in the midst of turbulence, I am growing and learning.

In the silence of my soul, I thank you most of all for your unconditional and eternal love.
Amen

Prayer #6

Thank You, God, for the harvest. I am thankful for what I have and for what I will receive. In this spirit of thankfulness, I pray with a very grateful heart.

Your loving presence provides for my every need. You make the rough ways smooth. Thank You for Your vigilant care.

Thank You for strengthening my judgment – good judgment that turns me away from pursuing courses that may be unwise and unfulfilling, good judgment that prompts right responses and right action.

Thank You for Your empowerment and strength in me as wisdom — wisdom to know what to do in any need, wisdom to know how to handle any situation, wisdom to avoid danger, wisdom to choose right paths.

Dear God, I am grateful for life, as it is unfolding in my life and in my experiences. I am grateful for the courage, strength, vision and stability of mind I have to know that all things are working together for the highest good of all, even in the midst of change.

I am aware that every good thing comes from You, God. I pray that I will be aware of all the good and give thanks for everything I see. I do not take anything for granted. I am filled with gratitude.

In Jesus Christ’s name, Amen.

Prayer #7

I give thanks for all the amazing gifts you have blessed me with in this life. Thank you for the clouds in the sky and the grass beneath my feet.

Thank you for the roof over my head that shelters me from the cold and the food in my stomach that nourishes my body.

Thank you for the clothes on my back and the knowledge in my head. Most of all God thank you for your everlasting love, guidance, and understanding.

Thank you dear God, thank you.
