“I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always offering prayer with joy in my every prayer for you all, in view of your participation in the gospel from the first day until now” (Philippians 1:3-5).
Are you thankful for those with whom the Lord has placed you? Be thankful and do not wish away the life you have been given. You have been placed in the circumstances you are in for God’s will to be done. In all things rejoice and give thanks. The Lord, who has given you the power to become His child, has made all this possible. Give thanks from now on for all His benefits.
Lord, teach me to have a thankful heart. Guide me, O Lord, in the way of truth, living in the light of your countenance with every breath You give me. Bring to remembrance all the good things You have taught me so that I may put into practice what is right and good. Lead me, O Lord, now and always in the way You know I need to go so that I may work with You in accomplishing Your will in my life. Teach me to be a person of prayer.
Lord Jesus, You have guided me thus far. Continue to strengthen me in this faith You have given me so that I may now and always be guided by You and the promises You have given me through grace. Lead me this day to remember and give thanks. Guide me this day to love others as You love me. Lead me this day to go where You send me, doing what is pleasing in the Father’s sight. Amen.
