God. Abba. Father.
We praise you, our great King! We will say of you, oh God, “There is none like you! How awesome are your deeds!” We think back through the days of our lives and wonder at how you have been with us through it all. You have encouraged us. You have challenged us. You have blessed us. You have taken care of us. Thank you.
You are the steady rock, the one thing that never moves or fails us, Lord. You have pushed us and tested us. You have walked alongside us. You are the anchor in an ocean of the waves of life that toss us back and forth. As you have prodded us, you have refined us like silver. You have polished and molded us so that we humbly reflect your image as the master silversmith. You have brought us to our own Promised Land. Thank you!
We will worship you! We will, with great joy, tell others of all that you have done for us. Thank you for hearing our prayers. You are such a great listener. And you didn’t turn away from us. Even when we confessed our most terrible thoughts and sins, you have chosen to love us, unconditionally. You offer grace in abundance.
We praise you and thank you!
In Jesus’ name.
