The Perfect Prayer

A woman clasps her hands to her heart in gratitude
I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonderful deeds.—Psalm 9:1 (NIV)

ONE OF THE greatest prayers is “Thank You!” Dr. Norman Vincent Peale said, “Let your prayer consist of all the wonderful things that have happened to you. Name them, thank God for them and make that your whole prayer. You will soon find that these prayers of thanksgiving grow longer and longer, and you will have more and more things for which to thank God.”

Today's Prayer:

Dear Lord, give me the vision to see Your blessings instead of my fears. May I feel Your presence in times of worry and remember Your strong desire to protect and guide me is more powerful than anything on earth.
