9. Father God, today I thank You for the provisions of my life… I thank You for the people in my life… I thank You for the opportunities You have given to me in my life… I thank You for the acceptance and forgiveness You have lavished upon me despite my sinful actions and choices… I thank You for the healing You have brought into my life—physical and emotional… I thank You for the way You have brought me back from the darkness that lurks in my soul and the choices I could have made that would have landed me in a pit—or the choices I have made that did land me in a pit… I thank You for the desires of my heart that You have satisfied with good things… And the desires that I have not yet seen satisfied. Help me to be confident because of the grace You have given to me in so many other ways, that even my unmet desires would be something I could be grateful for…Amen.
