Father, You are great and worthy of all my praise! How awesome are the things You have done! I am grateful and I bless Your holy name, Lord, for I have seen You at work on my behalf again and again, and I worship You, for only You could do these mighty things. You alone are God.
Thank You for Your provision. I remember when . . . (add from own life) Thank You for Your protection. I remember when . . . I remember the day you saved me . . . and I thank You for shining the light of Your presence into my darkness and not treating me as my sin deserves! (Pause and remember and give thanks.)
Teach me by Your Spirit to live with Your praise always on my lips. Forgive my ungratefulness, I pray, and change my complaining heart! When I look back and remember how You have been with me, how Your hand has been on me, I am filled with gratitude and praise. But too easily I am captured again by the storms around me and lose sight of You and my faith seems to disappear. Yet, O Lord, You have been faithful, faithful to all Your promises. Therefore, I will not fear, even though everything around me seems to give way and I seem to lose my footing in the midst of changing times. Regardless of the storms I face, my hope is in You, Lord, and Your unfailing love for me.
I ask, Father, that You write new songs of worship on my heart for You are worthy. Give me an undivided heart that I may fear Your name and honor You. As I remember all that you have done in the past, increase my faith Lord and my trust in You for those things that loom before me today. Help me in my weakness. Remove the shadows of doubt that still linger and affect my life. May all that I am and all that I do flow out of a heart of worship and adoration for You. For You are glorious, and I put my hope in You alone.

Praise the one who is able to do immeasurably more than all one can ask or imagine. Thank God for what he is doing in your life and in the church in response to prayer. Confess little asking and weak praying. Commit yourself to asking and expecting much in Jesus’ name. Claim the promise that Christ will come to you and make his home in your heart if you love him and trust him.
Pray that the countries currently banning the Bible may soon rescind these bans so that their people may have free access to the Bible.
