Today I want to join you in a prayer of adoration and gratitude, to bring to mind all that our good God has already done for us. After all, we should not pray as if we were making a “checklist” of requests. It is good to stop and give thanks for what God has already done or is still doing, and to worship Him for His infinite grace and goodness.
Worship, like the act of giving thanks for what God is already doing in our lives, creates peace, calms anxiety, as we remember the goodness of the One who first loved us. So I invite you to take this time to reflect a little. I leave here some passages especially for you today:
1 It is good to praise the LordPsalms 92:1-2
and make music to your name, O Most High,
2 proclaiming your love in the morning
and your faithfulness at night,
18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.1 Thessalonians 5:18
28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe,Hebrews 12:28
Remembering that you don’t have to repeat the prayer exactly as I’m going to leave it here, because each one of us has a specific way of communicating with the Lord. But if you want to follow me, it will be a pleasure, feel free to speak it in your own way.
Beloved God, I worship you, for you are powerful, worthy of all praise, the only God, the one who first loved me. Even before I was born you knew me, you gave me life, and through Jesus Christ, today I have life in abundance, for you have forgiven my sins, you did not hide your face when I suffered, but had compassion and poured out your grace on me. You are wonderful, holy and perfect.
I take pleasure in your word and in knowing that you are always at my side. I praise you, for you are worthy of all honor and glory. I deserved nothing, but still you take care of me in the smallest details, and my heart overflows with joy in knowing of your love for me. Father, I praise you for your perfect creation, the sea, the trees, the animals, the sky, you created everything with such perfection…
I also have so much to thank you for, for my life, family, church, job, health, home… in my daily life I see your care in the smallest details and when I am in a situation where I think there is no way out, then you bring me the solution. My trust is in You and my desire is to be able to dwell in Your house and worship You day and night. There is no other like You, there is no one who is worthy of praise but You, for You are my God and I will trust in You.
My God, Yours is the power, the glory and the honor forever. It is in the name of Jesus that I pray, give thanks and ask that my words may reach the Lord like a sweet perfume!
Prayer of a mere servant of God
God bless you!
