I thank You Heavenly Father for this day– and the opportunity, the privilege, the joy, the honor– to exalt, worship, magnify, praise, honor and adore, glorify, publish, and proclaim Your magnificent, Holy, awesome, precious, glorious and beautiful Name. For You are God and there is no other… You are the Supreme Potentate of the Universe; the Majesty who reigns on high over all that exist. You are the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob who became Israel in Whom I trust; in Whom I live and breathe and have my being.

You are Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent… Almighty God. You know and see all things and You are everywhere at once, and the Universe cannot possibly contain Your Holy Presence– for You are greater than the Universe of Your Creation. You have created all things by the Word of Your Power, for Your Glory, and By Your Grace– for You are Jehovah… The God who will be, the God who is, and the God who was– from Everlasting to Everlasting, You are…. the great I AM.

You created, named, and numbered all the stars. You have set them in their orbits, in their constellations and galaxies, and ordained their passage through space and time. You created every bird of the air, every fish of the sea, every creeping thing, every land creature; every tree, shrub, herb, vegetable, mineral, fruit; every mountain, desert, valley, ocean, river; every angel; and every man, woman, and child that has ever been created: You have created by the Word of Your Power, for Your Glory, and by Your Grace.

You are Jehovah Abba Father– You are my Daddy and I am Your son. You are Jehovah Lord Jesus Christ– my Savior, God, and King; my Friend, my Brother, my Beloved, and My Betrothed. You are Jehovah Holy Spirit– the Indwelling Presence of God in my life: my Teacher, my Guide, my Comforter, and my Counselor. I thank You for teaching me your ways, for guiding me into all Truth, for comforting me in these difficult and stressful times, and counseling me concerning Your Holy purposes and timing that I may exalt you in thought, in word, and in action.

You created me, and revealed yourself to me as God when You called me out of the world like You did Abraham. You showed me my sin, my depravity, my idolatry, my willful rebellion, and the chains that held me bound in the dungeon of despair– in the kingdom of darkness. But You shined the Light of the Glory of God in the Face of Jesus Christ into that dark place, and revealed to me the Truth: the Truth of Your Word… the inerrancy of Scripture from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21; and the Truth of the price You paid for my redemption: How You willingly came to earth to shed Your Blood and die on my behalf– that I might live for You.

Lord Jesus, You suffered such brutal torture, torment, and agony– when You incurred the wrath of Satan, the wrath of man, and the Wrath of God. Your Face was plummeted, Your Beard ripped from Your Cheeks, a helmet of thorn was beaten down upon Your Head with rods. You were spat upon, lied about, and reviled. Your Body was ripped to ribbons; spikes were driven in Your Wrists and in Your Feet, and You hung stark naked between Heaven and earth with the weight of mankind’s sin upon Your sinless Soul. Every sin that has ever been committed, is being committed, or will be committed between Adam and Eve and The White Throne Judgment You have paid the price for. I thank You that I have accepted Your unspeakable gift of Grace.

You died… and then You rose the third day, never to die again. And You said, All authority in Heaven and earth has been given unto Me; Go Ye therefore into all the world, and make disciples of all nations– baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit– teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and Lo’ I AM with you always… even unto the end of the age.

When I repented of my sins, confess them to you, and cried out for mercy– You forgave me of all my sins and broke those chains of bondage when You covered me with Your Precious Blood, separated me from my sins as far as the east is from the west, and Father You translated me from the kingdom of darkness to the Kingdom of Your Dear Son. You set me on the path to the City of God, and established as a son like you did Isaac: co-heir with Christ; — inheritor of your exceeding great and precious promises, partaker of Your Holy and Divine Nature. And like Jacob who became Israel, I am a Prince who has Power in union with God’s purposes, for Your Glory, and by Your Grace.

I thank you Abba Father for Your unfathomable love, Your creative ability, Your beauty of Holiness, Your provision for all my needs according to Your riches in glory in Christ Jesus, and for Your protection– surrounding us with Your Holy Warrior Angels, covering us with the precious Blood of Jesus— making us invisible to the forces of darkness, and guiding us by Your Holy Spirit.

I thank You Lord Jesus for Your continuing intercession on our behalf. I thank for being my faithful Friend and Brother, my Redeemer, and the Lover of my soul.

I thank You Holy Spirit for the fruit of the Spirit in my life: the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, and self-control. I thank You for the gifts of the Spirit in manifestation: word of knowledge, word of wisdom, and discerning of spirits; tongues, interpretation of tongues, and prophecy; gifts of healings, gifts of faith, and the working of miracles. I thank You for the Armor of God: for the helmet of salvation– for Jesus is my Salvation; for the breastplate of righteousness– for Jesus is my Righteousness; for the belt of truth– for Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life; for the shoes of the Gospel of Peace– for Jesus is the Good News and the Prince of Peace; for the shield of faith– for Jesus is the Author and Finisher of Faith; and I thank You for the sword of the spirit which is the Word of God– for Jesus is the Word that lives in me. I also thank You for the five-fold ministry anointing of the Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, and Teacher: the apostolic anointing to set things in order with signs following; the prophetic anointing to speak edification, exhortation, comfort, and warning; the evangelistic anointing– that by prayer evangelism, it would lead to power evangelism, that would lead to Your abiding Presence evangelism; the pastoral anointing to shepherd the flock of God: to bind up the brokenhearted and heal their wounds; and the teaching anointing– to teach them to observe all things that You have commanded us.

I thank You for all that You are, all that I am in Christ, and all of Your bountiful daily blessings for me, and all my dear loved ones who know and love You– the Fountain of ALL Blessings… In Jesus’ Name, AMEN.
