Thanksgiving Prayer

Dear God,

I want to thank you for what you have already done.  I am not going to wait until I see results or receive rewards.  I am thanking you right now.

I am not going to wait until I feel better or things look better.  I am not going to wait until the pain in my body disappears.   I am thanking you right now.

I am not going to wait until people say they are sorry or until they stop talking about me behind my back.  I am not going to wait until my financial situation or the economy improves.  I am thanking you right now.

I am not going to wait until the children are asleep and the house is quiet.  I am not going to wait until a different season in my life unfolds.  I am thanking you right now.

I am not going to wait until I understand every experience in my life that has caused me pain or grief.   I am not going to wait until the journey gets easier or the challenges are removed.  I am thanking you right now.

I am thanking you because I am alive.  I am thanking you because I made it through the day’s difficulties.  I am thanking you because I have walked around the obstacles.  I am thanking you because I have the ability and the opportunity to do more and do better.  I’m thanking you, Heavenly Father, because you haven’t given up on me.  You are good and you are good all the time.

Thank you for all the good you’ve done for me.  Amen
