Open Heaven Daily Devotional For August 25, 2022 : Topic – Prayers Of Thanksgiving
TOPIC: Prayers Of Thanksgiving
MEMORISE: “I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the Lord.” – Psalm 116:17 (KJV)
READ: Psalm 124:1-8 (KJV)
1 If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, now may Israel say;
2 If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us:
3 Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:
4 Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:
5 Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.
6 Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.
7 Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
8 Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Jeremiah 9-12
- Thank You Lord, for Your goodness and mercy over me and my family – nuclear and extended. I am very grateful to You Lord.
- Thank You Lord, for Your protection in the midst of all the challenges and insecurity in all the nations of the world.
- Thank You Lord, for always being by my side. Thank You for answering me whenever I call You. I am grateful, Lord.
- Thank You Lord for the troubles I have experienced in the past. Thank You for the grace to survive and today, I am still standing. I give You glory, Lord.
- Father, thank You for not allowing internal enemies to destroy me. Thank You Lord, for healing me, now and again, and protecting me from diseases and sicknesses.
- Thank You Lord for watching me even when I am sleeping. You neither sleep nor slumber, so that I can sleep. I am grateful, Lord.
- Lord Jesus, I want to say thank you specially for dying for my sins. If not for the sacrifice You made for me at Calvary, I would have been heading to hell now. Thank You for leaving Your throne and coming to earth to save my soul.
- Father, thank You for revealing to me all the good prophecies that have been said concerning me in the past so that I can walk in line with Your will for my life.
- Thank You Lord, for all the help You have rendered to me in the past. Lord I am grateful. (Recollect some of those times when God helped you and thank Him for them).
- Thank You Lord for all your blessings in my life. I will never be ungrateful to You, Lord.
- Father, thank You for forgiving all my sins. If You were to count iniquity, I would not be able to stand before You. However, in Your mercy, You always forgive me when I call on You. Thank You Lord, for that loving mercy.
- Your personal prayer of thanksgiving.
HYMN 15: Now Thank We All Our God
1 Now thank we all our God
with heart and hands and voices,
who wondrous things has done,
in whom his world rejoices;
who from our mothers’ arms
has blessed us on our way
with countless gifts of love,
and still is ours today.
2 O may this bounteous God
through all our life be near us,
with ever joyful hearts
and blessed peace to cheer us,
to keep us in his grace,
and guide us when perplexed,
and free us from all ills
of this world in the next.
3 All praise and thanks to God
the Father now be given,
the Son and Spirit blest,
who reign in highest heaven
the one eternal God,
whom heaven and earth adore;
for thus it was, is now,
and shall be evermore.
