Dear Heavenly Father, as we approach Thanksgiving, I have so many people and things to be grateful for this year. I am extremely grateful for the Bible. The Bible is a double-edged sword that we are able to use to pierce the darkness. I am grateful for your son, Jesus Christ, who died for all of my sins. I am grateful for all of the people in our family. I am grateful for all of our friends. I am grateful for the gift of prayer. Prayer is such a powerful tool that you has given to us. I am grateful for the beauty in nature. I love all of the creatures that You have made and the stars in the sky and the sun and the moon.

I am extremely grateful for all of the promises in the Bible. There are so many promises. The promise in the Bible that is the most important to me is the promise of eternal life in heaven with Jesus Christ. It is a simple promise that was given when Christ died on the cross. Jesus Christ died for all of my sins. The Bible tells us when we ask Jesus Christ in our hearts and surrender our lives to him and confess our sins daily, we are given the gift of eternal life in heaven with him. It is a free gift and we are on the sanctification process until we meet the master face to face. There is so much freedom knowing that I am saved by grace. Grace equals God's riches at Christ's expense. God, I am just so grateful that you are in charge and I have no fear. I love you, lord.

In Jesus' name, Amen.
