Thanks and Gratitude

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. Like many of our American Holidays Thanksgiving has a commercial element to it. Lot’s of food, football games, and even shopping.

Some historians will tell us the primary purpose of the Pilgrims was to create a day of prayer and humility, giving thanks to God for our many blessings.

In that light here is my Thanksgiving prayer focusing on Thanks and Gratitude.

God I realize that being ungrateful will turn me bitter, selfish, and dissatisfied give me the strength to be GRATEFUL.

God I know I have much to be THANKFUL for you have blessed me in the following ways.

All of my material blessings have come from You. I am GRATEFUL for the gifts I have received.

I thank You for the people in my life. I have been blessed to be touched by so many.

I thank You for the trials and difficulties You have laid out before me. I trust in each of these that You will be there and help me.

I thank You for sending your Son to be my Savior and Lord

I thank You for being present in my life

Science has said that having an attitude of gratitude is healthy.

Robert Emmons, a psychology professor at the University of California at Davis, has been a leading researcher in this growing field, termed “positive psychology.”

His research and that of others has found that those who adopt an “attitude of gratitude” as a permanent state of mind experience many health benefits.

I thank each of you who have read this post and wish you a Happy Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving
