Gratitude Challenge Day 7

Pray: Dear God, today we say a prayer for the doctors, nurses, and other medical staff across the globe. They have stressful jobs, working hard on behalf of their patients every day. And this year in particular has been especially trying on the medical world. We pray for their strength, stamina, and wellbeing. And just as life can be challenging for those working in the medical field, life can also be challenging for each of us, Lord. But something we are learning is that there is always something to be thankful for. This truly warms our hearts. Even when the things going on around us seem dismal, there are still blessings in each day and in each situation. As we face uncertainty in our lives, we remember that Romans 8:28 promises that You will work all things together for good. This promise brings us great comfort. And it helps us to trust You with each day of our lives. You are a loving, faithful, and trustworthy Father. We reach our hands out to You and raise a hallelujah. The enemy can’t bring us down when we have Almighty God by our side. We sing Your praises to drown out lies, fear, and unbelief. We sing Your praises because praise is a powerful weapon. Jesus, we rejoice in You! Thank You, Lord! With You by our side, there’s always an abundance of blessings to be thankful for. In Jesus’ precious name we pray. Amen.

Practice Gratitude: What are you grateful for? I am grateful for Romans 8:28 which tells us that God works all things together for good. I am grateful that we can raise a hallelujah in the presence of our enemies. And I am grateful that there is always something to be thankful for.

Praise. Here is today’s song! Enjoy! Raise a Hallelujah by Bethel Music, Jonathan and Melissa Helser

Please share in the comments if today’s reading spoke to you. Or you may add a prayer, your gratitude list, praise, etc.

  1. I’m thankful for this healthcare works that out their lives on the line on a daily basis to provide care to their patients. Several of them I know have contracted Covid from patients, but they continue on!! II’m especially grateful to those that paid the ultimate price, dying, to help others. This country owes them a debt of gratitude that can never be repaid.

  2. Romans 8:28 is a verse that brings me a lot of comfort too.
    I too am thankful for the doctors, nurses and all medical staff.
    For the simple joy of being able to take a walk and enjoy that time.
    For technology that enables me to connect with people of faith like you whom I otherwise would never have been able to interact with.
    Blessings my friend 💙
