Thankful Thursdays- Praying the word of God

From Genesis to Revelation we can find reasons to give God thanks, we know He accepts our prayers when we pray according to His will and His word. We can magnify the Lord with His word and we can use His word to bring us closer to Him, for His word is our truth when we apply it to our lives.

Father God, Most Holy God I come with a heart of thanksgiving. I thank You Father for prayer; I can pray for anything and if I have faith in You, whole heartily believing, I will receive whatever I ask. Holy Father thank you for complete joy: You have spoken unto me Your word that Your joy might remain in me and that my joy might be full. Lord I humbly give thanks for your love; just as the Father has loved You, You have also love me and has commanded me to remain in your love. Thank You my God for wisdom which you so freely give generously and without criticizing. Lord I lift my heart in thanks for You will work out Your plans for my life, for Your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever. You O Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; the God of my strength, in whom I will trust, thank You dear Lord, my Provider. Thank You Father for I have sinned and have fallen short of Your glory, but You O Lord have justified me freely by Your grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, and now also in Christ Jesus I who was once far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ for He Himself is my peace. Thank You Lord my God because everything I need to have a life pleasing to You has been miraculously given to me by getting to know, personally and intimately, the One who invited me to You dear God. In Your glorious and magnificent Name Jesus I offer this prayer of thanksgiving. Amen

Hi thanks for stopping by. I wish I could express my self as well as you do in your words. Maybe that will come in time. We are both thankful for the same things I am only capable of listing them at this time. I was in a car accident abt 4 years ago and hit my head several times. So I am still relearning to even spell correctly. The blog is helping to learn to communicate well again. Some times I have to go back again and a again and rewrite it to get my point correct. I to am thankful that god is helping me along the way. And for letting me get to read posts like yours.
