Prayer For Gratitude And Peace

O Lord, support us all the day long, until the shadows lengthen, and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done. Then in thy mercy, grant us a safe lodging, and a holy rest, and peace at last. Amen.

Lord Jesus, I am so excited that my graduation ceremony is here and I want to place the whole day in Your hands and ask that You draw very close to me. Give me that perfect peace as well as an excited joy throughout the whole ceremony.

Thank You, Lord, for giving me this marvellous opportunity to study, to achieve my education goals and gain valuable life experience, which I pray will equip me in the days that lie ahead.

Thank You for granting me the focus and direction to complete my course of study successfully, and I ask that You would give me the determination to step out into life, trusting my future into Your hands, knowing that Your plan for my life is the very best path that I should take.

Lord, I feel that this day is the first day of my entire future and I want You to take the central place in my life. I give You my grateful thanks for always being there for me throughout my life up to this point, and ask that You would lead and guide me in the days that lie ahead. In Jesus' name,


Lord Jesus, I am so grateful to You for the church family You have given me and for the love and encouragement that I receive from each member.

I bless and thank You that we are all members of Your body, and that we are all there to support each other in times of sorrow and joy as well as those seasons of sickness and health. How wonderful it is to know that we are all one in Christ and have that unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace and love.

I lift up the wider church family and pray that You would meet each one in their own particular time of need. I especially bring before You our brothers and sisters in Christ that have been rejected by their own family members due to their faith in the Lord Jesus. I am so grateful that the arms of love within the body of Christ stretch out to the four corners of the world.

Keep us all in a bond of unity, and may Christ be lifted up in the heart of each one. I ask this in Jesus' name,


Thank You, Father, for Your goodness and mercy to me, which is new every morning, and for the wonderful answers to prayer for which I praise and glorify Your name.

Thank You, that I have access to the throne of grace, to find mercy and grace to help in time of need, and day by day I praise and thank You that You hear and answer the cries of my heart and supply all my needs according to Your riches in glory.

Thank You, Lord, for the simple things in life that we so often take for granted, the sun and stars, the flowers and trees, our daily food and clothing, my home and family and the peace and joy that comes from knowing You.

Thank You also, for sharing in my sorrows and joys, and for the sufficient grace and strength that we receive day by day. And thank You, Lord, for dying for me on the cross as my Redeemer, paying the price for my sins so that I may have Your life and live with You in heaven forever. May my heart be truly thankful and may I live my life in a manner that is pleasing to You, to Your honour and glory. In Jesus' name I pray,


Dear God,

Thank you for your promise that your mercies are new every morning and your faithfulness is great. Thank you for your amazing power, your great love and work in our lives. Thank you for your goodness and for your blessings over us. We're so grateful that only in you can we find hope for even the toughest of times. Thank you for your power that gives us strength and for your Spirit who helps us in all things.

Thank you for your mercy and grace, that you are always with us and will never leave us. Thank you for your incredible sacrifice so that we might have freedom and life. Forgive us for when we don't thank you enough for who you are, for all that you do, for all that you've given. Help us to set our eyes and our hearts on you afresh today. Renew our spirits, fill us with your peace and joy.

Thank you that your ways are far greater than our ways and your thoughts far deeper than our thoughts. Thank you that you had a plan to redeem and that in you, all things are made new. Thank you that your face is towards the righteous, you are close to the brokenhearted, you hear our cries, and know our hearts. Thank you for your daily, powerful presence in our lives, that we can be assured, no matter what we're facing, your heart is towards us, your eyes are over us, and your ears are open to our prayers. Thank you that you surround us with favor as with a shield, and we are safe in your care.

We ask that you would keep our footsteps firm on solid ground, helping us to be consistent and faithful. Give us supernatural endurance to stay the course, not swerving to the right or to the left, or being too easily distracted by other things that would seek to call us away from a close walk with you. We pray for your protection over our lives, our families, and other believers. We ask for your hand to cover us and keep us distanced from the evil intent of the enemy, that you would be a barrier over us and we would find refuge in you. We pray you would give us discernment and insight beyond our years to understand your will, hear your voice, and know your ways.

Shine your light in us, through us, and over us. May we make a difference in this world for your glory, so your purposes would stand. Set your way before us. May all your plans succeed. May we reflect your peace and hope to a world that so desperately needs your presence and healing.

We love you and we need you Lord, this day and every day. We give you praise and thanks, for you alone are worthy, and we are more than conquerors through the gift of Christ!

In Jesus' Name,


Creator God, thank you that there is nowhere I can go that is beyond your presence. In your presence, I am blessed beyond measure. You have said that you will never leave me or forsake me, you are always with me. May I live a life of thanksgiving in your presence. Hear my prayer and fill my heart and my mouth with praise to you for your good gifts. May your love be the passion in my heart. May your joy be my strength when times are hard. May your presence be my peace that overflows. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

Lord, my Rock and Redeemer, thank you that you are my strength and my song, you fill my heart with joy. You have said that if I delight myself in you, you will give me the desires of my heart. Help me to be mindful of everything you have done for me. Everything I have is a gift from you. You are the God of peace, the great shepherd of the sheep. May you equip me with everything good that I may do your will. Work in me, that I may be pleasing in your sight. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

Mighty God, thank you that you give the gift of abundant, eternal life. The Bible says that, whatever I do, whether in word or deed, I should do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father. May my life be filled with thanksgiving and praise for your countless blessings. Give me assurance that you supply my every need through your generosity. May grace, mercy, and peace be with me, from God the Father and from Jesus Christ the Son, in truth and love. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
