I will exalt You, my God and King,
and praise Your Name forever and ever.
I will praise You every day;
yes, I will praise You forever.
Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise!
No one can measure His greatness.
Let each generation tell its children of Your mighty acts;
let them proclaim Your power.
I will meditate on Your majestic, glorious splendor
and Your wonderful miracles.
Your awe-inspiring deeds will be on every tongue;
I will proclaim Your greatness.
Everyone will share the story of Your wonderful goodness;
they will sing with joy about Your righteousness.
The Lord is merciful and compassionate,
slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.
The Lord is good to everyone.
He showers compassion on all His creation.
All of Your works will thank You, Lord,
and Your faithful followers will praise You.
They will speak of the glory of Your kingdom;
they will give examples of Your power.
They will tell about Your mighty deeds
and about the majesty and glory of Your reign.
For Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom.
You rule throughout all generations.
Ps 145:1-13 – NLT
If you are having any trouble finding something to be thankful for please reread the Psalm above. Meditate on it and ask God to show you how it applies to your life. Personalize it. Then, pray it back to God.
Where the Psalm says, “They will speak of the glory of You Kingdom; They will give examples of Your powers. They will tell about Your might deeds and about the majesty and glory of Your reign,” change it to “I will speak of the glory of Your Kingdom; I will give examples of Your powers. I will tell about Your mighty deeds and about the majesty and glory of Your reign.” Then, do it. Tell it to yourself. Then tell it to someone else. Tell it to your children. Tell people about how “The LORD has been merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love toward you.” If you still have trouble finding something to be thankful for, check your pulse.
