Prayer with Thanks

Lord you are my Rock! You are my everything. You move Mountains! You are totally Awesome!

I come to you and ask for forgiveness of my sins. You know my sins and you know that I need you to help lift those from my shoulders and out of my mind. Forgive me for I am a sinner! Father it is through your son Jesus that we have forgiveness of our sins.

I thank you Lord for listening to my cry for your help. Without you I am nothing. I feel your presence in my life now Lord, and I thank you. I thank you for my Wife. I thank you for Caylin. Thank you for my Family. Thank you for my friends. Thank you for my trials. Thank you for my Freedom. Thank you for my health. Thank you for the miracles you have created in my life. Thank you for my job. Thank you for all the materialistic things. Thank you for food. Thank you for water.

I pray for you to control my thoughts and actions. I pray that you will mold me to become a better Christian. I pray that you protect My family and friends. I pray that you will protect me. I pray that you will help those come to know you as I do. I pray in all these things unto your will Lord. Amen.

Jeremy, you have a wonderful list of thanks. There are other thanks I add as well, quite simple ones. Thank you for the smiles I see on the faces of others. Thank you for laughter. Thank you for tears. Thank you for humility. Thank you for friends who share their faith in such an unassuming way.

I agree there are so many too we forget how many there are. Thank you so much for writing more. I look back at the blog often so it helps when others write back.

I really Thank God for riding my bike even if I get yelled at while I am riding home. Yes sometimes it gets to me but after the fact I thank God. I am trying to be slow to anger and have done better. The best rides are when you don't get passed by a car all day, or someone yelling.

Then there are the wonderful rides, when you don't expect it: An excellent night of riding the bike where every driver was polite, gave me assured cleared distance! Casheriers who looked at me in wonder, and said, "aren't you cold" because I came into the stores, Christmas shopping, wearing my kit and my helmet, and sometimes needing to be reminded to turn off the flashing light, and it was 40 degrees outside. The cashier who then added, "I should ride my bike more often!" How can it be that I forget to thank God for giving me legs, lungs, and heart to ride? Yes, I owe Him much for giving me the chance to ride, and be with friends in the sport I love.
