Theme For David Jeremiah Devotional November 7 2020 – The Attitude of Gratitude: A Prayer of Thanksgiving
Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.
Recommended Reading: Hebrews 13:10-16
There’s an old song that tells us to count our blessings, but it’s not possible! There are too many.
Today, let’s offer a prayer of thanksgiving for some of them.
Heavenly Father, at this moment I’m not coming with requests, only with the sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving. Thank You for the sky—its blueness, its clouds, its sunrises and sunsets, its space for the birds to fly. Thank You for the ground—its green grass, brown sand, towering mountains, fruitful plains. Thank You for the seas—the vastness of the watery depths, the fish, the coral, the tides, the marvel of water itself. Thank You for beauty—the petals of flowers, the grins of children, the existence of colors, the blackness of the night sky, and the twinkling sparkle of the stars.
And Lord, thank You for providing everything for me to richly enjoy. The Bible says the cheerful heart has a continual feast, so thank You for all the flavors of life.
Whatever today brings—and tomorrow—Lord, thank You for You!
Gratitude is an offering precious in the sight of God, and it is one that the poorest of us can make and be not poorer but richer for having made it.
