He is Risen!
I thought this would be the easiest prayer of all to write until I began and words seemed beyond my reach because I knew the truth…
How Can I Ever Begin to Thank You, Jesus?
Your Resurrection Day changed everything! Everything!
Because of Your resurrection…
My sins are forgiven and I have been freed from sin’s greatest consequence.
He is so rich in kindness and grace that He purchased our freedom with the blood of His Son and forgave our sins.Ephesians 1:
I have a LIFE that lasts forever.
[It] was God’s plan from before the beginning of time—to show us His grace through Christ Jesus. And now He has made all of this plain to us by the appearing of Christ Jesus, our Savior. He broke the power of death and illuminated the way to life and immortality through the Good News.2 Timothy 1:9b–10
I have the promise that, You, Jesus are praying for me.
Because Jesus lives forever, His priesthood lasts forever. Therefore He is able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through Him. He lives forever to intercede with God on their behalf.Hebrews 7:34–35
I have hope for today, tomorrow, and forever.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy, He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.1 Peter 1:3 (NIV)
I have Your perfect peace to guard my heart and mind.
Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.Philippians 4:6b–7
I have confidence that all of Your promises are true and that You will faithfully accomplish them all.
Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. He was buried, and He was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said.1 Corinthians 15:3b–4
I have the assurance that You are with me through good and bad … always and forever.
Be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”Matthew 28:20
And today and every day I can proclaim with Job…
As for me, I know that my Redeemer lives,Job 19:25–27
and He will stand upon the earth at last.
And after my body has decayed,
yet in my body, I will see God!
I will see Him for myself.
Yes, I will see Him with my own eyes.
I am overwhelmed at the thought!
How can I ever begin to thank you, Jesus?!
With Your Spirit’s help…
I will do my best to make everything I do and say an offering of thanksgiving for all that You have done for me.
I will surrender each day to You. I will trust and follow Your will as You reveal it to me.
I will rely on You to give me everything I need for whatever lies ahead.
I will love You with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength and I will love those You place around me.
Yes, I will love because that is the perfect way to thank You, Jesus!
By Your grace, please help me fulfill these “I will” promises as my thank you!
Your love overwhelms me! Your love transforms me! Your love surrounds me and fills me.
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.Galatians 2:20
By Your grace, mercy, and love, I have everything I need now and forever!
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You, Jesus! Amen.
