20 Powerful Thankful Tuesday Prayers

A thankfulness habit is a spiritual practice I have adopted over the past few years. Specifically starting off Tuesday morning with thankful prayers to God helps me stay grounded, grateful and aware of how God is blessing my life. Use these 20 powerful morning prayers as a way to kickstart your own thankful Tuesday prayer practice.

How to have a thankful Tuesday time with God.

  1. Open with a thanksgiving focused prayer.
  2. Read a passage of Scripture about thanksgiving (and the surrounding paragraph or chapter for context if you can).
  3. Write out the verse.
  4. Journal or write out any prayer response you have
  5. Play and sing a thankful praise song back to God

Of course, thankfulness doesn’t need to be confined to just one day of the week. But starting with one day where you focus on thanksgiving can help cement this spiritual practice!
