Weekly Devotion: Living in Gratitude Week Two

September 30 – October 6


You are my God — I will give thanks to you! You are my God — I will lift you up high! Give thanks to the Lord because he is good, because his faithful love lasts forever. (Psalm 118:28-29)

Prayer Of Thanksgiving

Lord, help me to be grateful for what I have, to remember that I don’t need most of what I want and that joy is found in simplicity and generosity. Amen.

Consider These Questions

  • What is the best thing that has happened this week?
  • What music helps you dance with joy and thankfulness?
  • If you could talk face to face with God right now, how would you thank him?
  • What have you learned lately that has added to your thankfulness?

Show Your Gratitude

  • Text random friends and family and wish them a great day just because.
  • Spend an hour taking a prayer walk through a nature area. Thank God for the earth and offer blessings for all of creation.
  • Read Psalm 105 and think back over the week as to how you were blessed. Remember to add them to your gratitude jar.
  • Leave sticky notes on various cars in a store parking lot with simple messages of gratitude or kindness.
  • Help a family member accomplish something on their to-do list.
