It is normal for people to hesitate about approaching an all powerful, all knowing God. But the Lord Jesus graciously tells us that we are safe in His love and acceptance.
We might start praying by saying, “Good morning, Lord! Thank you for this beautiful day.”
That prayer opens the door to sharing your life with God. It is a prayer of thanks.
Through prayer we invite God to walk with us down the path of life. We begin to share life with God.
PSALM 5:3, NIV
3 “In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.”
PSALM 90:14, NIV14 “Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.”
You will be amazed at how thankfulness to God changes everything.
For the next week, wake up and thank God out loud for at least 5 different things each morning. Perhaps you are grateful for family, a loyal friend, food on your table, the place you live, or that you have come to know Jesus Christ!
Ask God to help you see how much you have been given and start to thank Him for these many gifts.
“Father God, may you, ‘Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.’ (Psalm 90:14)
This is the prayer of my heart today, Jesus! Remind me of how much you have given. I am so grateful for life and choose to have a thankful heart in all things today. Amen.”
