Amen

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, says: “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

 In addition to maintaining a general spirit of gratitude, try to remember to stop and praise God for the big, life-changing events that come along. Be humble about even the biggest blessings, because as the Bible reminds us in James 1:17, “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father.”

  • Major blessings might include things like meeting the love of your life, getting a major promotion, finding out that you’re expecting a child, or receiving an unexpected, meaningful gift.
  • A prayer of thanks after a blessing might be something like: “Heavenly Father, I am so humbled that you have blessed me with the gift of a child. I thank you with my whole heart. Please protect my unborn baby and give me wisdom to be a good parent. Amen.”
  • If you get caught up in the moment and you forget to thank God right when something good happens, it’s okay if you pray later when you do think about it. As you keep practicing gratitude, you’ll likely find that over time it will become easier to remember God in the moment.

Say a quick prayer after small blessings, as well. While it’s important to remember to thank God for major blessings, you should also pray any time something small makes you think of Him. For instance, you might say a short prayer of thanks because you caught a glimpse of a gorgeous sunset, or after you got a really nice compliment from a stranger when you were having a bad day.

  • Psalms 7:17 says: “I will give thanks to You, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonderful deeds.”
  • For instance, if you see one person doing a kind act for another, you might say a short prayer like, “Father, thank You for allowing me to see people showing each other the same Love You have for us.”

Method 1 of 2:Thanking God Directly

  1. Thank God continuously throughout your day. The Bible tells us that we should keep an open line of communication with God at all times, thanking Him for all He does. Not only will this help strengthen your relationship with God, but if you’re constantly looking for things to be grateful for, you’ll be more likely to find them.
    • In 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, the Bible says: “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
  2. Offer a special prayer of thanks after major blessings. In addition to maintaining a general spirit of gratitude, try to remember to stop and praise God for the big, life-changing events that come along.

In fact, in 1 John 4:16, the Bible says that God IS love. No matter what else is going on, that’s always something you should try to appreciate.
    • In Psalms 118:29, the Bible also says: “Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, His Love endures forever.”
    • For instance, you might pray something like, “Dear God, I’m having a hard time today, but I know that You are watching over me. Thank You for Your unconditional, unfailing love, and please help to uplift my spirit. Amen.”
    • Even if things are going well, you can still pray to God to thank Him for Loving you.
