Today we will be dealing with a prayer to thank God for His goodness. There are so many blessings of God that we have considered to be a normal thing. Hence, we have lost the consciousness of giving thanks for those things. Most times, we are more conscious of the things we want to ask in the place of prayer than giving thanks to God. Just because that money, child, or job you prayed for as not come doesn’t mean that God is not listening to your prayers or God has not been good to you. As long as you still breathe like every other means, God is still watching you, and He would answer you in His time.
The scripture says He makes everything beautiful in His time, which means God indeed has his own time. He would not be compelled to work with your timing. No wonder the scripture says in the book of Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. We must learn to give thanks to God. If he has not allowed our lives to be taken, that means he still has plans for us, which he will do in his own time.
The air we breath is enough reason to thank God when you take an honest visit to the hospital and see the number of people who lives their life on paid oxygen, only then will you realize that you have been an ingrate all this while by not thanking God for life. The scripture says his mercy endureth forever, so also his goodness to us. For every man that is still alive on this planet’s surface, God is good and merciful to you. It is not that you are the most righteous person, not that you are the most fervent Prayerist. It is only the mercy and goodness of God that has kept you this far. Therefore, you must learn to give thanks to God.
Meanwhile, giving thanks to God for his goodness also unlock numerous blessings from God. Little wonder King David became God’s favorite despite his atrocities on the throne as King of God’s nation, Isreal. King David never take the goodness of God over his life for granted; that is why he never misses the opportunity to give thank to God for his goodness. As we cultivate the habit of giving thanks to God for his goodness, may it unlock blessings for us in the name of Jesus.
May God accept our sacrifices of Thanksgiving unto him and answer our silent prayer for us to testify greatly to his powers in the name of Jesus. He who knows how to give thanks for every little blessing that he is given will surely know how to give thanks for more incredible blessings. The heart of gratitude will be compensated with a greater blessing. I pray that God will make everyone come to the realization of this in the name of Jesus.
