FATHER IN HEAVEN, AS we reflect on our blessings, even though we are surrounded by grief and pain there are still countless reasons to be thankful. The main reason we will forever be thankful for is the sacrifice of your son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Through His death and resurrection we now have the assurance of salvation. Not even death can hold our loved ones in the grave. That’s why we will praise your name with all our hearts and tell everyone the marvelous things you have done. Please accept our worship that flows from a thankful heart. Even in the midst of the challenges we face, we recognize that it’s because of your mercy and grace that we remain standing. Thank you Father for your amazing saving grace. Thank you for your goodness and for providing in our needs. Please continue to transform our hearts so that we may reflect your compassion with those who don’t know you. It is through our daily interactions with others that we want to ultimately express our gratitude towards you. Loving our neighbor unconditionally just like you have commanded. It is in Jesus precious name that we pray and thank you. Amen!
