Prayer of Praise and Thanksgiving

Prayer of Praise and Thanksgiving

“My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord, And all flesh shall bless His holy name Forever and ever.” — Psalm 145:21

Father God,

You are holy. You are righteous. You are the most high God, El-Elyon. You are the only true and living God. You are El-Shaddai, the all-sufficient one. I come before you with praise and thanksgiving for life, breath, and salvation in the name of Jesus. Thank you for creating me in your image.

Thank you for grace and mercy. Thank you for seeing me. You are El Roi—the God who sees me. You see my struggles. You know what I need. Thank you for being my provider—Jehovah Jireh—what I need shall be seen and will show up in my life.

Thank you for hearing my heart and my desire to grow closer to you and to be free of evil spirits that try to influence my mind, body, and soul. You are Jehovah Nissi, my banner that goes before me and gives me victory in Jesus. Thank you for being Jehovah Shammah; your presence is always with me and I am never alone.

God, the word says you are a consuming fire (Hebrews 12:29). I’m asking you to send your holy fire in my life to consume everything that separates me from your presence and your love. I declare that nothing can separate me from the love of God. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate me from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus my Lord (Romans 8:38-39). Lord, draw closer to me, as I draw closer to you (James 4:8)

You are a faithful God. You are Jehovah Shalom, my peace in times of trouble. Thank you for strengthening me, and guarding me from the evil one (2 Thessalonians 3:3). I declare that the joy of the Lord is my strength (Nehemiah 8:10). I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be in my mouth (Psalm 34:1). You are good and your mercy endures forever (Psalm 136:1). God, you are great and worthy to be praised. I will bless your name forever and ever, because you are good to me. Blessed be the name of the Lord (Psalm 145). Amen.
