1. Morning Prayer of Gratitude

Pray this: Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! (Psalm 95:2)

Thankfulness is a great way to establish a relationship. When you thank God for something, you’re giving credit where credit is due. Start your day by going around the breakfast table and having each person talk about something they’re grateful for.

2. Short Prayer of Gratitude

Pray this: Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances…. (1 Thessalonians 5:16–18)

Sometimes I want to call the apostle Paul “Impossible Paul.” He gives us one short sentence with three commands that seem impossible. Until I try them. Rejoicing, praying, giving thanks. Could prayers for gratitude really work?

I have found it helpful at times not only to “give thanks” but to write down what I am grateful for. Make a list. Be specific. One time, when I feared I was sinking into a bottomless pit of depression, I took out a pen and paper and wrote. And wrote. By the time I looked up, I had almost filled the page. I was going to be okay.

3. Evening Prayer of Gratitude

Pray this: Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. (Philippians 4:6)

How can we give up worrying? It never works to tell myself, “Don’t worry, Rick, don’t worry.” Instead, I need to move my mind and spirit into a more positive realm, as this verse reminds me. I let God know where and what my needs are, praying with the assurance that I am heard and my prayers for gratitude will be answered.
