Pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit.

Heavenly Father, I sit here in awe of all that I should thank you for. You are so much bigger and greater than I could ever understand.

Give me reminders to be grateful today. Don’t allow me to miss the small—or big—blessings around me. Fill my heart with gratitude.

For my friends who struggle to pray, would you give them a desire to know you more. Teach them to pray, as you’re teaching me to.

Thank you for Jesus. Thank you for loving us. Thank you for the gift of grace.

In Christ’s name, amen.
