We always seem to spend time telling God what we want or think we need. We can get into the habit of putting ourselves first in our prayers. Every single day there is something to be grateful for. It may only be that today I woke up. Maybe we need to start each day by thanking God for life. It is a good idea to keep a “blessing book.” A place where we write down the things that are good. It helps us to get the right perspective on life. Thank and praise God every day!
Gracious God, I know you are glad when we pray even if it is just for ourselves. Help us to see the things that deserve gratitude and thank you for them. AMEN
