Gidget, 55, Washington, USA…

"For leading and teaching me in His Way, for loving me unconditionally and teaching me to love others as He loves me. For my private home and personal car, running water, electricity that is turned on by the flick of a switch. For the mornings in His presence and that His watchfulness over me throughout the day. For the family He graciously provided, the grand children who are plentiful and the salvation of them all. For the changing seasons of my life…the youth of Spring, the warmth of Summer and canning of His Word, the 'Fall’ing away of my sin nature in Autumn, and the Winter’s of hardship that have created Faith. For His forever friendship and the friends He has sent my way, if only for a short time. In Jesus Name, Father, I send my thanks…


WHAT should we thank God for, and HOW should we praise Him? Answer

What is the origin of America’s annual Thanksgiving Day? Answer

Sandy Emblen, Australia…

“I praise God every day for my beautiful daughter; we lost our first child to still birth then 12 months later God gave us our little girl. That was 12 years ago. She is really a blessing from God.”


René, 41, Texas, USA…

“He is my source of life, my Strength, my comforter, my Healer and most of all my Savior! Without Him I would merely “exist” in this world without a “purpose,” but with Him I have a purpose. A purpose to do His will. Out of my gratitude for what he did for me I share His salvation plan with anyone who will listen and teach the Word to those that desire to be more like Him. I am thankful that God chose me to be His heart, His eyes, His mouth, His hands and His feet. What more can we do for Him than to do what He says to do, which is the will of the Father?”


Susan, 50, Florida, USA…

“I thank You Lord for my birth. I thank You Lord for the mother who gave me up. I thank You Lord for the mother who took me.”


Ephraim Winkfield, Jr., 53, Charlotte, North Carolina, USA…

"I’m thankful to God for His divine presence in my life through the indwelling of His Blessed Holy Spirit. Although right now I’ve been unjustly fired from my job now for almost a year. God, however, still sustains my every need by allowing me to be a blessing to others through my teaching of His Word in Bible study and Sunday school. I continue to try and stay focused upon my ‘help’ which only ‘comes from the Lord’ (Psalm 121:2). Who wouldn’t be thankful to serve a wonderful God such as this!!!!


Shobin, 20, U.P., INDIA…

“I thank God for Jesus, because I know that even if I was the only sinner on this earth, he would still have come down and died on the cross for me.”


Robert Altimus, 14, Georgia, USA…

“For helping my bones in my leg heal. Before I broke my leg I never realized how blessed I was to be able to walk!”


Matthew, 16…

“I thank God for allowing me to experience the many joys of life, by giving me the opportunity to love and be loved by other people.”


Gina Williamson, 15, Georgia, USA…

"Dear Daddy, I thank you for forgiving all the sins that I have done that you don’t approve of and making me whole again. Lord I praise your name daily and I always imagine me walking by your side and how it will feel so good to be in Heaven with you. Lord I thank you for my family, friends, and all the things you have made. Lord you have satisfied my soul and cleansed me with your BLOOD. Without you, there is no me. Lord I praise your name and I want to be with you. Your Lovely Daughter, Gina."


Joyce Matlock, 47, Oklahoma, USA…

“My husband and his health, after an serious accident in January of 2003. For work that he provides to my husband and I. To my church family who gives me wind beneath my wings when I need it most. For people in my life who make me laugh, because it is good medicine for my heart.”


Mary A. Anim, GHANA…

“For protecting me all my life. My mums and families all over the world. Thank you God, through Jesus Christ.”


Michelle, Arkansas, USA…

“BECAUSE HE FIRST LOVED ME. God, you send many many blessings everyday into my life. Christian parents, beautiful christian children, a christian husband, good health and for ALL things whether good or bad. I am thankful to live in the U.S.A. God you have shown me many blessings in my life and without you I would be nothing but miserable. Thank you for coming into my heart and that I will forever and always be YOUR child.”


Greg, 18, USA…

“College life is hard. It seems that my faith is being attacked everywhere I go. I thank God that He has given me strength and wisdom to shine for Him in this darkness.”


Kimmie, 22, Louisiana, USA…

“I thank God for the beautiful way in which the golden light from the setting sun plays among the leaves of the eucalyptus tree outside my balcony. I thank God for the ‘kairos moments’ in life, when time seems to stand still and the sweetness of the moment will resound in your heart forever. Praise be to our beautiful God!”


Lincoln, 20, SINGAPORE…

“I thank God for bringing me back to Him. For His faithfulness to me and not mine to him. For if it were by my works and my faithfulness, I would have been a lost cause. I thank my Abba for His undying and unending love for me. Through all my sins and shame, He has never ceased to show me His grace and mercy. And I know His word is first, and His word is last. Alpha and Omega, Beginning and the End.”


Linda, 51…

“I have been through some very tough times in my life. I thank you my Lord for giving me the strength to get through those times. Because of that strength, I have a great life, a wonderful husband, family, and friends.”


Connie Seaney, 73, Mississippi, USA…

“For His guiding hand in my life through the years. Even through illnesses, cancer and paralysis of the vocal chords, He was with me through it all.”

“Thank you Lord for being a God that forgives. Thank you for keeping your loving arms around me. There were times when I thought I was all alone… You were there. THANK YOU!”


Bryan Colvin, 29, Louisiana, USA…

"First and for most for sending Jesus into the world so that we might allbe saved by believing in him. Secondly for my beautiful wife and daughter that he has blessed me with. Third for my family. And last and absolutly not least my call to the ministry to be a lamp for him to shine his word to others. Amen."

Rebecca DiCandilo, USA…

“I am thankful that God never loses track of what He is doing in my life. His plan is spread over so many years and He still remembers to make me the woman He created me to be.”


Cynthia Nutt…

“At one time my daughter was taken and hidden from me, and I wondered if I would see her again. At one time I was bound by the bondage of drug addiction. At one time I was bitter from the abuse that I suffered as a child. At one time my second marriage seemed to be ending as my first. At one time I was so depressed, I just could not stand to wake up again. At one time I could not do it myself anymore, so this time I opened the door of my heart and soul to JESUS CHRIST MY LORD! At this time my 15 year old daughter has lived with me for the past 3 years and she loves the Lord. At this time I don’t need or want drugs. At this time all bitterness is gone. At this time I am married to a beautiful, kind, Christian man. At this time with JESUS in me there is nothing I cannot withstand. I want to give God the glory for all the miracles he has performed in my life. Every thing changes except the love that the LORD has for us!”


Maggie Tosca, 51, Florida, USA…

“When I hear about parents who have trouble with their children—involved in drugs, alcohol and other worldly vices, I’m thankful to God who was ever faithful to me. When I turned my daughters over to him on a desperate night as a single parent, saying these words, ‘God, what am I going to do with these two little ones (one was 1 week old, the other 1 week short of being one). I cannot do this alone, Father. I give them to you. I need your help; they are yours. Help me to have the strength to bring them up the right way, for without you I can’t.’ God honored that prayer that I made 25 years ago, and today I’m thankful for my daughters and my grandchildren who are still being watched upon by God. One is in a music ministry and the other is a great mother, sister and daughter. Thanks be to God that He is faithful to His Word and His children.”


Katherine Jones, 51, Virginia, USA…

"Thank you for my family, friends, enemies, for my two years of unemployment. Thank you for allowing me to lose my home and my good credit and all my money and insurance. Thank you for using the last two years to show me how wrong I was to not have you in my life. Thank you for my bad health and for all the negative things that have happened to me. I truly believe that all things happen for a reason for those who love God and are called according to his glory. Through all of the bad, I have known that you can change my financial life, professional life,and health because you are all knowing and all powerful. I know my redeemer lives and if you choose not to help me but allow me to keep loosing and never win, I will still serve you. I believe in the Father, Son and Holy Ghost and I will serve you. My most fervent wish is to be saved and go to heaven. Please change me. Come into my life and make me a better person, use me for your glory. I love and adore you and give to you all praise."


Jess Daw, 17, AUSTRALIA…

“Thank you for helping me through my lowest times, and thank you for blessing me so I can reach my highest. Thank you for giving your only son so that I can live my life according to your will, and thank you for giving me abundant happiness in my life.”


Julie Dine, Michigan, USA…

“My God and Heavenly Father, I thank You this day and every day for Your love and mercy. You saved me through your Son, Jesus, only 3 short years ago and You saved my husband and children also. What a God You are! You love those the world calls unloveable. You save those the world says are unsavable! You and You alone are God! There are no other gods before You! You made heaven and earth, plant and animal, and yes MAN. You made America great because America was founded by men of God--men who forsook themselves and humbled themselves before You--Men who reverently looked to You, Lord, for guidance and walked in Your ways--Men who knew You and Your commandments and had the Godly wisdom to know that this new nation, America, would only prosper and become great if blessed by Almighty God. Father God, have mercy once again upon America. So many of us have forsaken You. We no longer know You nor Your commandments. Our money says “In God We Trust” but our lives say “In Wall Street We Trust”. We murder our unborn babies and leave our children to be raised by anyone but the mother to whom You entrusted the child to be born to. Our children know You not. Many think they are ancestors of apes! Have mercy on us all, O God! ‘And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great’ (Rev. 19:5).”


Barbara Broussard, Louisiana, USA…

"I give thanks for…
- God giving of his only son that I may have life after death.
- For Mary & Joseph saying yes to a task that was so very difficult to live.
- The air that I breathe
- The food and drink that is before me.
- My children (even though we sometimes dislike each other) - we will always LOVE one another.
- My husband - my friend.
- For my 1ST Grandchild (even if I was not ready to be a granny!)
- For my health (Good and Bad) - It means that I have life.
- For allowing me to live comfortably and having some the things that I want around me.
- For allowing me to work with the teens in my Church. (They are the future. They also bring a different view of situations.)
- For allowing me to live in the USA (where my freedoms are taken lightly)
- For all of my friends & enemies (my friends love me for who I am, and my enemies help me get closer to God by praying for them daily).
- For all of you out there that believe and are living the word."


Michael Mays, Idaho, USA…

“Thanks to God for His unspeakably wonderful gift of Salvation, Grace and Peace to the United States. Oh that men would praise Him for His Goodness !!!”


Kate Dooley, Illinois, USA…

“I am first and eternally thankful for sending Jesus to rescue us! I am so grateful to have a Bible to know my God more. And here on earth You have blessed me abundantly, with a loving husband and 2 beautiful girls to be a stay at home mom!”


Chris Palmer, 22, England, UNITED KINGDOM…

“…the gifts of my senses …His love for all people…”


Debbie Clark, USA…

“Having once lived in a nation where public Christian worship services are forbidden, I am thankful the freedom of worship. I am thankful for my experiences in a non-Christian nation because I do not take our religious freedom for granted as I once tended to do.”


Brian, USA…

“I want to thank the Lord for sticking by me for all my life. Even before I came to Him during a devastating time in my life, He was there, watching over me, patiently waiting for me to open my heart to Him and receive His love and grace. My family was torn apart last year in a divorce. I had nowhere else to turn, and accepted Jesus into my heart for salvation and for a center to my life, which had spun out of control. Now, 9 months after the divorce was final, I am slowly getting to a place where I can consider a fresh start to my life. Living according to the Word has been the greatest challenge, yet has been a great reward as well. I thank You, Lord Jesus, for saving me and redeeming my soul for life everlasting. Even when I fall, and confess my sins to You, I am renewed by Your grace. You have given me so much, especially over this last year, that I am awed by Your love for me. I pray that my ex-wife can accept You into her heart, and receive Your grace as well. I pray that my children continue to grow in Your ways, even though I am not there physically to guide them. I thank You, Lord, for the family I had. Amen!”


Juan Carlos Barragan, USA…

“I thank God for what I have, since what I have is probably more than a billion people in the world will ever have. I’ve learned to thank God for His love and understanding, and for His steadfast kindness. I thank Him in all things and circumstances in spite of my inability to grasp His purpose, I give Him thanks.”


Kelly, 31…

“God is so good! I am thankful for my salvation. I am also thankful because God has restored my will to live. After an abusive marriage and painful divorce, I became very depressed. I drove to a hotel two states from my home with a bottle of pills, not planning to return. God met me in that room! He has blessed me beyond anything I even asked for. I just wanted to come out of the blackness. I just wanted to stop crying and hurting. He has done so much more for me than that. He has restored my joy. He brought the best man in the world into my life- a promise-keeping, growing, on fire Christian man. God restored my joy. He brought peace and comfort back to me. My husband, as good as he is, is not responsible for the joy and peace. That praise goes only to Jesus. God is so good! He does not take pain and heartache away, but He will see you through. Trust Him. He never fails. He can’t. He’s a Great God!”


Babu Paul, 42, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES…

“Thanks my Heavenly Father for giving this life to me. I thank for your guidance and help in my life.”


Colette Erck, USA…

Thank You Lord for my new church. I have been searching for way too long to join a new church. Some of this searching has been painful. Finally I have found a body of believers that feels like home and I can grow spiritually. I feel so welcome there and that I can participate and grow spiritually. I am having some difficulties in my life and God has provided me with a family of believers- because he knows I need them now.”


Duane Kennedy, USA…

“For not giving up on me and rescuing me from my drug-addicted, alcoholic biker lifestyle. He chose me as His and now I’m addicted to His love and mercy. It’s been 5 years now and I wouldn’t trade it for one day of the past. Praise His Holy Name.”


Robyn Prizzi, USA…

“I am thankful to God for all that he is. He is an awesome God who died on the cross for me and has forgiven me of my sins. He has provided me with a wonderful husband and 3 children and a home we love. He has been my comforter when our son died. He was there as a Father to let me know as a child I was doing wrong—and lovingly with open arms accepts me daily for who I am. I thank God for the church he has led us to and for the wisdom he has given to our pastor, who through God has taught us so much. There is so much to be thankful to God for, and it’s such a blessing to take time out of our day to do just that.”


Gary Martin, USA…

“I am very thankful to God for men like Paul Taylor, Ken Ham, Gary Parker, and all the other modern day Martin Luther’s who have the courage to stand up for the accuracy and authority of the Bible. I am thankful for web sites like this one that are of such high quality, and reach so many people with its important messages. I pray that God will richly bless all who are involved with this site, and all the leaders of the creation movement who make it so much easier for the rest of us to defend the accuracy and authority of the Bible.”


Andy Wigzell, USA…

“Oh Lord, God! Thou hast made the heavens and the earth by thy great power. Thank you Lord for restoring my marriage, my family to thine own covenant. Thank You for protecting us, for prayers answered and Your timing in all of Your providence. Thank You for aligning me in Christ and giving Your daughter and my wife the gift of a now faithful husband.”


Josh Hughes, 18, USA…

“I thank God for being patient with me as I went through my teenage years. I strayed from God and did a lot of things that were wrong. Now that I look back, I can clearly see instances were God’s hand was protecting me. It’s great to know that God’s love is enduring and patient.”


G. Thompson, USA…

“Even though I have been evicted from my home and am low on money, I have the love of Jesus Christ, for life, health and strength, and four healthy children He has blessed me with. I know that crying may come by night, but joy comes in the morning. I trust and believe that the Lord did not bring me this far to leave me. Glory to God Almighty, my personal Savior, who loves me and guides me, and protects me. No man, woman, place, or thing can take away my joy in the Lord.”


Diane, USA…

“I want to thank God for healing me. When the doctor told me that I had cancer it was like she was telling me that I had a cold. She looked at me waiting for me to act to the news. I just said ok what is your next step. God gave me such peace, I never cried I always had a smile on my face because I have faith in God’s word. I know to whom I belong. That whatever God’s will for me, He would get glory from it. I just had to stand strong and true to His word.”


Robert Cunningham, USA…

“I am so thankful for all that the Lord has given to me. However, all my thanks is ultimately given to Jesus Chist. Praise God for life in Chist!!!!!!!!! I lived 18 years of my life as a slave to sin. I have now lived one and a half years as a follower of Jesus Christ and am thankful for every minute of it (Psam 84:10). Christians, let us rise up and tell the world about the transforming power of Jesus Chist. Praise God!”


Terri A. Schaefer, USA…

“For helping me (a single mom) raise two teenage boys. Less than a year ago the three of us moved back to my home state where my family lives. My husband left our family for someone else. We were devastated. Through God’s grace and love we were lead to Southeast Christian Church and our lives have changed dramatically. I was baptized in January and my 18-year-old son was baptized last week. Just a few months ago he was definitely taking the wrong path, and the burden on my shoulders became too heavy to bear. God has turned our difficult situation into an unbelievably positive one. I am so grateful to him for so many prayers answered!”


Dianne Williams, USA…

“I am thankful to God for each day. For the bible tells us that his mercies are new every morning (Lam 3:22-23). Often in our busy lives we forget just how much we depend or should depend on God. Not just for the big things, like bringing a lost child back home, healing a sick loved one, providing for us in a financial crisis, but the little things. His gentle touch that awakes us each morning, the brilliant colors of His rainbow, the smile on my child’s face. Most of all, I’m thankful to God for his Son Jesus, our Lord and Savior. For His love for me to send Jesus into my life. For His blessed assurance. And for this site that allowed me to express my thanks. Have a blessed day in Jesus.”


Ted Plumb, USA…

“Thank You God for my mother and the Godly life she lived. It hurt real bad when you took her home but I know she’s out of pain now. Sometimes it’s hard not to be able to see her. I so much wanted her to be able to see my dreams fulfilled, because they were her dreams too. I made it mom! I hope you’re proud of me. I miss you like crazy!! Because of her relationship with You Lord, her family will be with You forever in heaven. My mother, Janice Dell Plumb, because she put Jesus first, was the glue that held our family together. Glory to the King of Kings!!!”


Nellie, USA…

“I am thankful to my GOD for being a beacon, for being the anchor of my life, for answering my every prayer, for pricking my concious when I sin, for keeping my children and grandchildren safe from harm. For my life, my all. Praise His Holy Name!”


Melane Addison, USA…

“I thank you Father God for being my Best Friend when no one else has stood by me. The lonely times when I cried myself to sleep to have you awaken me with a hug or a song of comfort from your Holy Spirit. I thank you for all the abilities You have given me, and the strength You give me when my abilities end. I thank you for protecting me in those times of my early youth when I went astray and I also thank you for not protecting me in those times I needed to learn a lesson. It is true, your mercies are new each morning, and each morning I look to stand firm and see the deliverance that only You can bring. I love you.”


Art Robertson, USA…

“I thank God for His unlimited grace that has saved, kept, directed and assured me of His eternal love.”


Kirby Wilbur, USA…

“I thank Him for all the many blessings he has showered me with, family, friends, mental and physical health, liberty, economic success, an opportunity to touch people, and for His Son, without whose death and resurrection, all would be for naught.”


Elizabeth Gray, USA…

“I am so thankful that God is GOOD to me. I am old enough now to look back over my life and see where He has brought me from. I see His hand on my life the whole way. How I love Him! I am thankful for salvation. I am thankful for His abiding presence. I am thankful for His patience with me as I am growing. I am thankful, oh so thankful, that I am His child and He is my loving and precious Father. I am thankful for the joy that He’s brought into my life: my husband, my beautiful children, my home. He is precious and good and altogether lovely. Oh bless His name!”

“My son was born pre-maturely 2.5 years ago. I had to hold an oxygen mask on his little face after they performed CPR. He then remained in intensive care for 4 days. With the power of GOD my son made an incredible recovery. The doctors expected him to remain in intensive care for 3-4 weeks not 4 days. I never prayed so hard in my life. God performed a miracle. My son is alive to day and doing just fine. I thank GOD every day for that miracle.”

Thank you also for the teachers I now have as a freshman. I may not always understand what they say, but I know they try their hardest to mold me into a successful person in life.
