Dear God,

Thank You for the challenges You have put in my life. It is through these challenges that I have learned to rely on You and trust in Your plan for me. Although they have been difficult, I know that Your purpose is always good, and I am grateful for the growth and strength that have come from facing these obstacles. Thank You for allowing me to experience adversity, as it has deepened my faith and dependence on You.

I am thankful for the challenges because they have led me to seek You in prayer and draw nearer to You. I am grateful for the way these difficult times have shown me my need for You and the comfort and peace that come from turning to You in times of struggle. Thank You for using these challenges to draw me closer to You and deepen my relationship with You.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
