Slightly Obsessed #010: A Prayer of Thanksgiving

 

It is good to give thanks to the LORD

And to sing praises to Your name,

O Most High.

– Psalm 92:1

 

Dear God,

I’ve been thinking lately

about those in the Old Testament who complained

and became the Ungrateful Dead,

 

while I wallow in my complaints,

Unscathed.

 

I’ve been wondering about me who is so blessed

and just as undeserving

and thankful maybe once a year,

the ungrateful living,

and how it must hurt Your heart.

 

Renew me.

Restore me.

Remind me

of all I have been given.

 

Teach me to live as if “amazing grace”

were not a cliché,

 

 on my face every day

in worship of such a forgiving God.

Amen.
