Thankful Prayers

We continue THANKS-O-RAMA 2011 here on GUWG with a selection of thankful prayers from around the world and throughout the ages. Pray through ’em right now and make ’em your own.

You turned my wailing into dancing;
You removed my sackcloth
and clothed me with joy,
that my heart may sing to You
and not be silent.
O Lord my God,
I will give You thanks forever.
(King David)

Thank You, Lord Jesus,
that you will be our hiding place
whatever happens.
(Corrie ten Boom)

You have given so much to me.
Give one thing more —
a grateful heart.
Not thankful when it pleases me,
as if your blessings had spare days,
but such a heart
whose pulse may be Your praise.
(George Herbert)

Dear Lord,
Thank You for this day.
Hold my hand
and give me courage
to carry the cross
You have chosen for me.
Let me never complain.
Let me smile and give strength
to my family and friends
and to all I come in contact with.
I accept what I have
and will not ask,
“Why me?”
I will fight until You take me
because it is my belief
that I was made
to serve You on earth.
(Betty McElwee)

Thank You
for unlocking doors we cannot open.
Thank You
for locking doors that we cannot lock.
Thank You
for being the key.
Thank You
for giving us Yourself.
(Peter Lord)
