Holy God, you are El Roi, the God who sees me. I come to your mercy seat humbly and in reverence for who you are. Thank you for giving me the years I’ve lived so far. Thank you for your promised blessing for each day. Thank you for my home and for a family who loves me. Thank you for calling each of my children to your everlasting salvation. Thank you for providing for my daily needs. Thank you for the eternal hope in Jesus. Thank you for reminding me of the joy of your salvation even when the storms rage around me. Thank you for my brothers and sisters in Christ. Thank you for my church family. Thank you for wanting a relationship with me in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.” (Colossians 2:6-7 ESV)
