Marriage Prayer – All Things are Worth Giving Thanks For
Dear Heavenly Father,
We’re always thankful for family, sunshine, good food, friends, happiness, health, and a roof over our heads.
Dirty laundry not so much–until we’re reminded that these clothes are a gift. The reason we have a pile of laundry is because we are blessed with drawers full of clothes.
We’re not thankful for dirty dishes until we’re reminded that we have food in the cupboards and much food in our tummies.
We’re not thankful for fingerprints all over the fridge until we’re reminded that wonderful people live in this home.
We’re not thankful for messy beds to make, and sheets to wash, until we’re reminded that we have comfortable beds to sleep in at night.
We’re not thankful for the mess in our living room until we’re reminded that life happens here.
One look around our home and we’re reminded that life is good and that all things are worth giving thanks for.
Through the ups and the downs, the clean and the messy, the good and the bad, the better or worse… may we always give thanks.
In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. – 1 Thessalonians 5:18, KJV
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. – 1 Thessalonians 5:18, NIV
