A Thanksgiving Prayer

 
“AND YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH.” Mark 12:30 
 
With all my HEART I’m thankful FOR
Your presence, Your intimacy.
 God, You draw near, sweetly reveal
Yourself to me, satisfy me.
 
With all my SOUL I’m thankful SINCE
Your salvation rescues, secures.
 God, the Author: abundant life
Found in Your Son–Your plan for me.
 
With all my MIND I’m thankful TO
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
 God, forever the One true God
Majestic One, LORD God Most High.
 
With all my STRENGTH I’m thankful IN …
Adversity, lonely labors.
 God, You make rough places smooth, You
Faithfully stay, restore, renew.
