My Thanksgiving

Where do I place my faith and gratitude?

“To love God means that we obey his commandments. Obeying his commandments isn’t difficult because everyone who has been born from God has won the victory over the world. Our faith is what wins the victory over the world. Who wins the victory over the world? Isn’t it the person who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?” 1 John 5:4-5 GW

My faith in Christ gives me the confidence that neutralizes any fear. It gives me the strength and courage to press on that brings success in my life.

I am grateful that God chose me.

I am grateful for the plans God has for me.

I am grateful because He has brought me here in this moment to believe wholeheartedly in Him because of all my experiences – failures, accomplishments, heartaches, and joy. He is the one who turns dreams into reality. Miracles happen every day. I am grateful beyond measure.

Praying the Scriptures:

“(I) know that the Son of God has come and has given (me) understanding so that (I) know the real God. (I am) in the one who is real, his Son Jesus Christ. This Jesus Christ is the real God and eternal life.” 1 John 5:20 GW

I am grateful! Thanks be to God.

“Give thanks to the Lord. Call on his name. Make known among the nations what He has done.” 1 Chronicles 16:8 GW

My Prayer

Dear Lord, I praise You that you have comforted me with your son, Jesus Christ to redeem me from my sins. I praise you and I am grateful for your promise that You will send Him again to judge the world in righteousness. Open my eyes in awareness of His role in my life by His grace. Thank you, Lord, I am grateful for Your gift of Jesus Christ. I am grateful for all your many blessings this day and every day of family, friends, community, and for everything I take for granted each day. Forgive me, Lord. I know Lord it comes all from You. I am grateful and in Jesus Christ’s name, I pray. Amen

I am grateful that you have taken the time to read and follow my blog. Thank you and may you all have a grateful Thanksgiving Day holiday!

Blessings on Your Day!

My Spiritual Journey

The Prayer Journal’s blog is my personal spiritual journey in conjunction with writing my spiritual memoir.

Please reach out to The Prayer Journals if I can answer any questions about keeping a prayer journal of your own. A prayer journal is an intimate communication between you and God. You don’t have to be an articulate writer. Use your gifts to communicate with God by perhaps with your talent as an illustrator, a painter, a poet, a lyricist or creator of scrapbooks. God enjoys hearing from you. I know you will be blessed! I know I am!
