Sometimes the best prayer in life is simply “thank you.”
Saying thank you for what you can see and already have in this lifetime is great.…but equally important is to say “thank you” in advance for what you faithfully want, desire and are working towards.
God listens and loves a thank you prayer and the universe responds accordingly.
Examples of Thank You prayers:
Thank you prayer #1: Thank you lord for air to breathe and life. Thank you lord for healing my cousin of all cancer and pain. Amen.

There is just so much to be thankful for…..thankful to have breath to breathe and the fingers to type this thank you prayer. Thank you and Amen.
