Thank you Jesus Prayer

Jesus, your presence in my life is so precious,
I fill my lungs with the breath of your life.
I declare your love endures through the darkness,
I fill my mind with the goodness you bring.

Your gift within my heart is so releasing,
I fill my voice with the sound of your name.
For you are my friend and Lord eternal,
I fill my soul with your everlasting grace.

To walk in intimacy and love with others.

I Am Worthy

(a prayer of thanksgiving)

I am worthy to sit at your table
Only because of your grace.
I am adopted into your great family
A child of an eternal King.

I am free from the fall that surrounds me
I’m hidden with Christ purified.
I am walking in promises every day
For you fill up my dreams with new life.

I am sheltered by my Abba Father
He knows me and loves me by name.
I am so thankful to be blessed and cherished
Your goodness I’ll forever proclaim.

Prayer of appreciation

(a prayer of thanks for the blessings in life)

Let the details in life take my attention today
A warm mug of tea
The gentle grass under my feet
And the chance just to gather and eat

O Lord
Let the everyday pleasures ring out melodies in my heart
The smile of a friend
A warm comfy bed
The sunlight on the trees and walks in the park

O Lord
Let the more ordinary reveal its amazing delight
Clouds drifting by
Birds sweeping high
The sunset that transforms day into night

May these things inspire me to praise
And bring a clear moment of sight
Now I see how amazing the world truly is
And soak in Your goodness and light
