Discover Why Saying a Gratitude Prayer Can Be a Magnet to Attract Abundance and Blessings into Your life
Saying a gratitude prayer on a regular basis should be one of your top spiritual practices. Why? Because doing so can definitely help you attract more good into your life.
"A grateful mind is a great mind which eventually attracts to itself great things." -Plato
Your thoughts are very powerful. Whatever you regularly focus on, you attract into your life. (I’m sure you’ve heard of the Cosmic Law of Attraction.) So when you make the decision to spend some time each day being grateful, you can actually pave the way for more good to flow to you.
I know it isn’t always easy to say a prayer of thanks. This is especially true when you are going through tough times. You are probably focusing on your problems and you might think you have nothing to be grateful for. But you can always find something in your life that is going well. And having an attitude of gratitude can be a way to help you get through your challenges.

For What You Have – Say a gratitude prayer for the things you already enjoy – whether they are big or small. Every night before I go to sleep, I think of at least 5 things I am grateful for and then I say, “Thank you God.”
When to Say a Gratitude Prayer
For What You Want – You can express gratitude when you set an intention for some new wonderful thing to come into your life. You are so sure that it is going to show up, that you give thanks for it now. This is a powerful demonstration of faith. And strong faith causes the Universal Law of Mind to take action.
While Meditating - During meditation, you can use a mantra such as “Thank you God, Thank you God” or “I am grateful for my good.” This helps flood your subconscious mind with the idea that you have lots to be grateful for. (And remember Plato’s statement about a grateful mind!)
Why You Should Say a Gratitude Prayer
It Transforms Negative Thoughts – Saying a gratitude prayer can help you transform your negative thoughts into more positive ones. If you look at the things that you don’t have in your life, you are going to feel bad. However, when you focus on the good that you already enjoy (remember it can be small things too), then you are likely to feel good.
It Trains Your Mind – The Cosmic Law of Attraction doesn’t know the difference between big or little. It only knows how to bring you what you think about. If you decide to be grateful only when you receive big things, you might be waiting a very long time. When you are consistently grateful for small things (in addition to big ones), you are training your mind to have an attitude of gratitude. This can help you attract bigger things into your life. (Of course, when you received these bigger things you are going to express thanks for them – right?)
To Know Spirit as Source – When you say a gratitude prayer on a regular basis, it helps you to recognize that all of your good comes from Spirit, not from the outside world. So if one channel of good closes, you know that Spirit can bring your good to you from some other channel.
How to Pray
Short Prayers Work – When you say a gratitude prayer, it doesn’t have to be long and detailed (although it can be). Short prayers work just as well. My favorite and most commonly used prayer is “Thank you God.”
Affirmative prayer – At times you might want to say a more detailed prayer of gratitude. This can help you understand intellectually and emotionally where your good comes from. A Sample Gratitude PrayerThere is only one life and it is the life of Spirit. Spirit is perfect love, infinite abundance, complete goodness and is ever available to me. Since Spirit is the only life that exists, I recognize that I am part of this life. Spirit is the total source of my good and It has already given the kingdom of good to me. It is awaiting my acceptance of it and I accept it now. I am grateful for the blessings that I have already received. I am also grateful for the blessings that are on their way to me. I know that my acceptance of these blessings does not deny any other person from receiving abundant blessings also. Therefore, I accept greater and greater good in every area of my life. I know that these blessings flow into my life in ways of ease, joy, peace and harmony. I am grateful for the overflowing goodness of Spirit. It is done. It is so. And so it is.
Make saying a gratitude prayer part of your daily spiritual practice. Not only will you recognize and appreciate the good that you already enjoy, but you will also be sowing the seeds for more blessings to grow in your life.
