Pray: Dear Lord, we have come so far in this gratitude challenge. We have spent the past several weeks focusing on giving thanks. Lord, please help us to continue on this journey. Please help us to keep looking for opportunities to express our thanks to You and to those around us. Please help the words “thank you” to be frequently on our lips. One thing that we have found is that gratitude makes us feel better. So when we feel like we are losing steam, please remind us to keep going.
Lord, we also ask for Your wisdom and discernment in everything that we are facing. Help us to stay in tune with You. Help us to hear Your loving voice above the noise of the world. Help us to remember that we have the Holy Spirit living inside of us, guiding us with any decisions or crossroads in ours lives. It is in Christ alone that we find our hope. He is our light and our strength. We thank You, Jesus, for Your precious blood. We thank You, for being our comforter. We stand in Your love and grace. In Jesus’ most beautiful name we pray, Amen.
Practice Gratitude: What are you thankful for? I am thankful that Jesus is our hope, Jesus is our light, and Jesus is our strength. I am thankful we have the Holy Spirit guiding us, giving us wisdom and discernment. And I am thankful that we can turn our ears to the Lord to hear His loving voice over the noise of the world.
Praise. Here is today’s song! Enjoy! In Christ Alone performed by Lauren Daigle
