1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
16 Always be joyful. 17 Never stop praying. 18 Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
Our lives are filled with trials; things do not always go the way we hope. Even on those rough days, we need to be filled with joy and be thankful for our blessings.
I thank you Lord for the many blessings you have poured out on me! You have given me a wonderful family, a nice home, a good job and health. Even though there have been upheavals this week in my life, I know you have your arms around me and I lean on you. (Be more specific with your circumstances today.)
In Jesus name I pray. Amen
