Father, in the midst of all that is going on in my life, I want to stop long enough to say thank you. Thank You for being my rock on which I can stand when I’m weak. Thank You for being my shield of protection when the world wants to assail me. Thank You for being my hope when I look at what seems like hopeless situations in my life. Thank You for being my guide in the middle of a pathless world.
Thank You for always being there even when I felt lonely. Thank You for caring about me when I didn’t even like who I was. Thank You for watching over my loved ones when I can’t be there, or am unable to do anything about what’s going on. Thank You for standing in the gap for me when I am too tired to defend myself. Thank You for overlooking my shortcomings and my deficits. Thank You for loving me when I don’t feel worthy.
Thank you for being the loving, kind, merciful, gracious God that you are.
In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen
