Father, we indeed thank you for all that you have done for this nation, especially opening the doors to freely worship you. May those doors remain open. You are worthy of all our praise and worship just for who you are. Again, we say thank you.

Dear Heavenly Father, we praise you for your loving kindness to us and all we love. I will enter his gates with thanksgiving and I will come into his courts with praise (Ps. 100:4). I have deep gratitude in my heart to my Jehovah Rapha for my husband currently recovering from six bypass open heart surgery. Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus (1 Thes. 5:18).
I praise God for being able to live in a free nation and a caring community. His love, Jehovah Jireh has turned His face toward us and continues to provide for our family. I’m very grateful for our four children and their spouses as well as our 14 grandchildren and one great grandson. I praise our Lord for allowing me to work in ministry for 35 years. He is always good and I have so much to praise Him for daily.

Gracious Heavenly Father, I give thanks for all the ways you have blessed and nurtured us and our nation, for Your goodness and Your love. Lord Jesus, we ask for Your mercy. We plead Your blood over our nation and each of us. Please grant a turning of hearts to Your truth. Please bring us back into alignment with You and Your Word. We pray for Your mighty soul harvest and declare that the United States of America belongs to You! You created it for Your divine purposes and we boldly decree that we are STILL ONE NATION UNDER GOD, OUR SOVEREIGN LORD! We give thanks that You are just, HOLY, Righteous, and love us beyond comprehension. Thank you that you hear every prayer and always answer in the ways You know is right to do.

I Thank You Father, Jehovah Rapha for healing my son from granular vasculitis! The scars on his body from all the damage of the disease also were removed by your hand! My son Nick would say “Mom, don’t worry about the scars, Jesus had more scars!”. After praying over his legs that Jesus would remove all the scars, within weeks, all the scars were gone!!

I am thankful for the Christian heritage of my country. This morning I watched the U.S. Army band chorus sing the Battle Hymn of the Republic, which ended in a rousing “Amen”. I am thankful for God providing me good health, a good financial condition, loving family, and that He is my shepherd, opening and closing doors for me as appropriate. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, He is with me, His rod and his staff they comfort me. He prepares a table before me in the presence of my enemies. Praise the Lord!

I thank you Lord for answering prayer in where we are asking for continued exposure of all things that are not of You. Each and every day You continue to expose the evil ones plans and all that he has done. You help all of us working and praying for righteousness and justice to come forth to continue the path toward that goal. May we all be in the palm of your hand. Protect and watch over everyone and their families that are exposing TRUTH. Most of all Lord God continue to take the blinders and mind control off the people to see what You are doing and to accept what they need to see and hear. We love You Lord Jesus, we thank you for being our Advocate, Healer, Deliverer and most of all our Savior. True Freedom only comes from You Precious Jesus. We thank you for that Freedom in Christ! Hallelujah! May more experience that Freedom as we go through 2023. In Jesus Name I pray.

Father God, thank you for the overturning of Roe vs Wade, for waking up this great nation , one heart at a time,! Thank you in our family for bringing our prodigal son back to you and for restoring relationships in our family! You’ve not only miraculously healed friends with cancer but you’ve answered so many daily prayers with miracles as well!!! I could write a novel on the miracles of this year alone, but these are the first ones that come to mind. Please continue molding us to be more like you. May we humble ourselves, repent and turn to follow you the remainder of our days, shining Your light for others to do the same! In Jesus’ name I pray!!!

I thank You that I did not wake up in a hospital bed, as many others have. I lift all who are sick up to You, and ask you to give them peace, comfort and healing. I thank You that I have never gone a day hungry, and I lift up those who right now have nothing to eat. I thank You for Jesus.
Amen.

Lord, Thank you for Allena Jordan who posted the above comment. I remember this song well from my childhood. I just looked at an old hymnal I have and it’s refrain is “sacrifice of praise”. Thanks for the history of the hymn also.
I read through the hymn quickly, and then I realized I hadn’t let the words sink in or barely thought about them. So I slowed down and reread it, thoughtfully. Now I will reread this hymn meditating on the Lord. and in a thankful spirit.
We have so many things on our mind, there is much to do and enjoy, and contemplate, we have a hard time slowing down to focus on God. I am thankful Jesus encouraged me to read through the comments. I read another person’s post that even after 30 years of service the person wanted to know God in deeper ways. Sometimes knowing and experiencing God can be painful. Be ready to give all to Him, trusting him through it all. And be ready to thank Him.

Thank you El Shaddai (God Almighty), for your blessing upon our church. We took out a consolidation loan in 2017 for $1,875,000 to be repaid over 15 years. Our church has a membership of approximately 400-500 people, many of whom are retired and living on a fixed income. We have been paying around $325k a year toward repayment of this loan. As of the first Sunday in January, 2022, our remaining balance stood at $655,000. Our Pastor believes in debt cancellation rather than debt reduction, so the church was challenged to become debt free in 2023. On September 4th, the church celebrated it’s 103rd Birthday and we celebrated with a church announcement that we were DEBT FREE as well. We have since created a maintenance fund goal of $350k and are currently at $130k towards that goal! All this in the worst economy of 2022! GOD IS ALIVE AND WELL and continuing His work in Eustis, FL. We praise His name and now we are able to do even more for Him and our community because of HIS GOODNESS! We give God all the Glory, Praise & Worship for who He is and ALL that He is capable of doing through His children!

Thank you Father for showing me that the continuing years I serve you, (30 so far) I realize how much of a novice I am when it comes to the things of God like prayer and knowing Your Word. I am hungrier for your precepts now than ever. There is so much I need to learn and experience and I am forever grateful that I can truly say after thirty years I don’t know it all.
As you know Lord, I made a commitment to master Your Word a few years ago and I am continuing that journey until I see you in glory.
Thank you for loving me with as Jeremiah said “an everlasting love.” I stand on your promises and know that no matter how fierce the trials You are my shepherd who goes before me in every trial. Help me to continue to draw nigh to You and you will draw nigh to me (James 4:8). In Jesus’ name, Richard

I have been praying God would remove all those from office (federal and state) who do not have the interest of the American people at heart; those who are only interested in themselves and what they can gain from holding office. He has done it! One in particular is leaving, and I know God is cleaning house. Praise the Lord!!

I live in Belen, NM. When I moved here 5 years ago I found a church that preached the Word of God in a powerful way. We are claiming Belen for Christ. I am a intercessor. I prayed and Yahweh gave me more Intercessors and we have been traveling through the small town of Belen praying for schools, churches and neighborhoods. Our Pastor is very involved with the community churches and much more. I am blessed to be a part of Yahweh’s kingdom work!

You know, I make it a point to give thanks at the first moment I open my eyes, daily. Also, I make it a point to do the same just before I go to sleep. Yes, starting and ending EVERY day giving thanks. The way I see it, if were honest with ourselves, we all have FAR more to be thankful for than to complain about. Cheers fellow believers!!

Lord, I thank You for the gift of singing, for giving me a voice to sing Your praises. And so, this is my song of praise to You today:
1 For the beauty of the earth,
for the glory of the skies,
for the love which from our birth
over and around us lies.
Refrain:
Christ, our Lord, to you we raise
this, our hymn of grateful praise.
2 For the wonder of each hour
of the day and of the night,
hill and vale and tree and flower,
sun and moon and stars of light, [Refrain ]
3 For the joy of human love,
brother, sister, parent, child,
friends on earth, and friends above,
for all gentle thoughts and mild, [Refrain]
4 For yourself, best gift divine,
to the world so freely given,
agent of God’s grand design:
peace on earth and joy in heaven. [Refrain]

Notes
Folliett Sandford Pierpoint originally wrote this hymn for use during the Communion of the High Anglican Church. The original refrain “Christ, our God, to thee we raise; This our sacrifice of praise” was meant to mirror the portrayal of Christ’s ultimate sacrifice — just as the host would be lifted during the communion as a token of God’s gift to us, a “sacrifice of praise” would be lifted in return. Later editions of the text emphasize the thanksgiving aspect of the verses. –Greg Scheer, 1995

In the midst of chaos and packing to move, I do a card and ornament for those who have lost loved ones or even pets. I had 3 dogs to do and I thought that I was going to have to start all over trying to get the paw print, which would add more stress to me. I prayed because it was already packed away in a box in the container I put it in. I was either searching for a recipe or putting recipes away and I found it amongst my cookbooks. I hadn’t put it away from last year.

I thank Almighty God for the miraculous, beautiful, historical shift of Roe v. Wade overturn after 50 years, believing that God’s church is taking seriously 2 Chronicles 7:14, “ If my people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and heal their land.” God’s people are in the middle of something very big, God big! And I praise and thank Him.

HEAVENLY FATHER, Thank You for allowing me to wake up this morning. FATHER, Thank You for your mercy and your grace over America. We have broken so many Commandments, and yet you have not “thrown us away.”

We can’t even begin to comprehend your Great Love for humanity…HOLD US EVER CLOSE, FATHER…..America is stained with deep, deep sin—and so many of us are overcome with all that is going on….At times, we feel that our nation may have “crossed the line”—-gone too far.

Thank You, FATHER, for HOLY SPIRIT—–we could not make it without him.

And LORD—I DO BELIEVE………….

I thank God for the gift of being alive to witness the first step in the total erridication of the scourge of abortion in our nation. After nearly 50 years of prayer and tears the glorious breakthrough in June moved the assignment to the next battlefield in each state. The birth of IFA in 50 states is truly a Jubilee event.
