I write thanks you notes all throughout the year. At Christmas time, I receive numerous gifts and always take the time to hand write a note of appreciation. But never have I taken the time to write a thank you to you – until now...
For My Health
I thank you for my health for this past year. I appreciate having no frailties not even a tooth ache! I thank you for being able to walk, run, swim and smile. I apologize for not smiling more often. I get lost in the details and all too often forget how very fortunate I am especially in comparison to years where I was very ill.
For the Health of My Family
I thank you for the health of both my friend and my family. While some have struggled we have been blessed this past year with no deaths. And while one family member is struggling to overcome breast cancer, at the moment the outcome looks very favorable.
For New Friends
I have been blessed with many new friends this year – wonderful new friends at work, new friends on the Internet, and new friends on Hub Pages. I especially thank you for my friends overseas. When I was little I dreamed of pen pals – never did I dream pen pals would be available at my finger tips. Thank you Lord for the miracles of friendship and the miracle of the internet.
For New Skills
I have ventured forth and with strength from you have accomplished many great things.
Thank you for Experiencing Generosity & Abundance
I am the recipient from many great friends and most importantly, I read about your generosity and abundance poured out to my fellow writers in need. I know you are allowing those great deeds to happen.
Prayer for Those Who Have Strayed
I pray to you for forgiveness for the many people in the news who have lost their way. I pray for those who have sinned, I pray for those who hate. I pray that the hardness of their heart may be softened and their relationship with you restored. I understand how deeply sin separates your love and grace from those whom you love.
A Prayer for an Abundant Economy
I pray that people may once again feel abundant. The economy has hurt so many individuals and so many families. Where overspending was once the norm, now under spending has become the norm. Help people spend wisely. Help people to fill the abundance of wealth given to them. And give a job to everyone who wants one Lord – work is so important to people’s financial stability, to people’s self-confidence. Lord, grant us an economic recovery complete with jobs for everyone.
Prayer for a Unified World – Prayer for World Peace
I pray for no lost child, I pray for soldiers not to be needed, I pray for no anger, I pray for no hardened hearts, I pray for all of us to grow close to you and to be able to be able to experience your grace. I pray for a closer relationship with you.
Prayer for Others to Know You & Comprehend Your Greatness and Goodness
I see lots of troubled souls Lord. I pray that all will seek you. I pray that they will come to understand your vastness and power. I thank you for the many wonderful trips I have taken and the miraculous sites you have given to me. I have experienced your great mountains, I have experienced your great deserts, I have experienced your great oceans, I have experienced the diversity of many continents and many nations. I have seen a tiny glimpse just how great you are. I marvel at the Google maps of earth from space. I marvel at sending an email across the oceans. I marvel at your greatness. And I thank you for sharing these great things with small me.
Thank you for Your Forgiveness
Most of all, I thank you for your forgiveness of my sin. I know sin separates us from God, from you and from the holy spirit.
Thank you Lord Jesus.

Thank you ALL4JESUS, I must say I often forget to add in my prayers that Thank you. I am so, so spoiled I take for granted My Saviour's Love and forgiveness and my Fathers Grace for that I need to make amends. And your little thank you note has put me in remembrance of my rotten self's own wants using Father and Son as a cash machine or a vending machine how un-meek I have been thank you for this Hub.

Gratitude is the most wonderful thing. It expresses our realization of that which is God given.

I think this is a wonderful undertaking that I'm going to adapt in my prayer life. We forget at times to thank the one responsible for the daily miracles in our lives. We must be thankful for drawing a breath daily and waking up in our right minds. Thank you for this thought stirring hub and excellent reminder. Peace to you this day

You are developing the style of thanksgiving. Amen.
