You get them. I get them. We all get them.
As you read this, if you are still living and breathing,
you are receiving the blessings of God every single day:
Blessed be the Lord, who daily loads us with benefits,
even the God of our salvation. – Ps 68:19
Now, here’s what you might not realize…
We are expected to give thanks to the LORD for every blessing and for carrying us in His arms daily.
Many years ago I made an astounding discovery (at least to me at the time).
I found out that the more I gave thanks – even for small things, even in unpleasant situations – the MORE blessings multiplied in my life.
Please listen carefully…
I’m not just talking about giving thanks when all is going well.
Anybody could do that.
But the scripture says:
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus concerning you. – 1 Thes. 5:18
Did you notice the words “in every thing”?
That’s the keyword here.
In a dark and stormy night …
… I found that showing gratitude and giving thanks, apart from pleasing the LORD who really is the Giver of all good things…
… also served as a giant “excuse” for Him to shower even more blessings upon me and my loved ones!
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the
King David used to wake up at midnight -- to thank the LORD. He said:
Father of lights, with whom is no fickleness, neither shadow of turning. – James 1:17
At midnight I wake up to give thanks to you for the regulations,
which are based on your righteousness. – Psalm 119:62 (God’s Word Version)
That was one of his success secrets.
No wonder the Bible describes him as a “man after God’s heart”.
He was a prayer warrior king.
And he proved to be unstoppable... in both the physical and the spiritual battlefield.
Little wonder he invites us (present-day believers) to:
O taste and see that the LORD is good:
blessed is the man that trusts in him. – Psalm 34:8
What follows are 25 scripture-turned-into-thanksgiving prayers to help you do just that.

How to Pray Them (Prayer Eagle Style)
There are many ways to pray this kind of prayer.
But there’a an approach that’s PROVEN to bring deliverance from age-old problems in a matter of days, no matter how long you’ve been suffering from them.
(For this approach to work, though, you must be genuinely born again … and you must NOT be living in any known sin).
You can go about this approach in any ONE of the following ways as directed by the Holy Spirit:
1 Three consecutive nights’ vigil i.e. praying at the midnight hour.
2 Three days’ fast – praying at intervals during the day and breaking the fast at 3pm, or 6pm or 9pm daily.
3 Seven nights’ vigil i.e. praying at the midnight hour for seven consecutive nights.
4 Seven days’ fast – praying at intervals during the day and breaking the fast at 3pm, or 6pm or 9pm daily.
5 Three or more days of Esther fast (please refer to how Queen Esther fasted in the Bible).
Please take your pick.
Do remember to seek the advice of your doctor if you’re considering option 5 (it works the fastest but it’s also the most challenging).
