Gratitude is being thankful to God and to others for the good things I have been given.
Prayer for gratitude:
O Lord, I ask that you would give me a grateful heart. Too often i accept your blessings as if I deserve them, and complain about what I don’t have. You have given the greatest gift of all – Jesus Christ. Please help me to be truly grateful. In Jesus name, Amen.
Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
I Thessalonians 5:18
From Get Wisdom! by Ruth Younts.
Before teaching these things to your children it would be good to consider if you can pray the prayer above with a sincere heart. How would biblical gratitude change your life if this prayer was on your heart and lips each day?
