Thanksgiving Prayer

Lord, forgive me when I take for granted
Everyday things for which I am blessed
Life is not easy, You remain in control
Renew a heart of gratitude in my soul

So many people lack enough food to eat
Or good shoes to wear on their cold feet
Still for others, homelessness is the norm
Seeking shelter to survive and stay warm

I am grateful I have a job and ability to work
In the challenges I face, change my outlook
Help me through inventory with extra stress
Strengthen me daily to find in You my rest

For the health I do have, I give You praise
Every breath I take is from You all my days
Keep me disciplined to maintaining goals
In every area, to develop more self-control

Psalm 100:4 (NIV)
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
