Prayers of Thanksgiving
Perhaps the most neglected type of prayer is a prayer of thanksgiving. While Grace Before Meals is a good example of a prayer of thanksgiving, we should get into the habit of thanking God throughout the day for the good things that happen to us and others.
In the silence of the heart God speaks. If you face God in prayer and silence, God will speak to you. Mother Teresa (1910-1997)

Thank You for this Day Prayer
Almighty Father, I humbly thank You for this new day.
I am blessed for You are a loving, forgiving and an understanding God.
You have done a lot for me and You keep on blessing me.
Father, forgive me this day for I have sinned. I beg now for Your forgiveness.
Lord, let me start this day with gratitude.
Keep me clear of all danger and harm.
Let me begin this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude.
Let me make the best of each and every day and give my best in all that is put before me.
Clear my mind that I can hear from You.
Open my mind that I can accept all things that are of You.
Let me not moan and whimper over things I have no control over.
Father, let me continue to see sin through Your eyes and acknowledge it as evil.
When I sin, allow me to repent, and confess my wrongdoing,
and receive the forgiveness of God.

and for all their gifts and talents.
Lord, I thank you for the many gifts that they have given to others.
For all the kindness that they have shown to me.
Father, at the beginning of time You breathed Your life into creation.
May you breathe Your life into them now,
So that each step they take is filled with Your faith.
Each thought they think is filled with Your hope,
and each moment they live is filled with Your love.
May they fully know Your life
And fully live in Your love
