“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16 KJV
How often do we pray without asking God for something? How often do we just tell Him we love Him and appreciate Him and thank Him for all He has done for us? If you’re a parent, you know how happy it would make you if your children just said thank you without asking you for something.
A mother prayed every day for twenty years for her son to be saved but she only thanked God once for saving her son. How that must have hurt our Heavenly Father. God loves us and gave His beloved Son to die on the cross for our sins. How often have we thanked Him for loving us so much?
Heavenly Father, thank You for being a tender compassionate and loving Father. I love You and appreciate You. Thank You for adopting me into Your family and for the privilege of serving Your Son. Jesus, I love You. Thank You for dying for me. Holy Spirit, I love You. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
