“Look to the interests of others” (Philippians 2:4, paraphrased).
“Behold, how pleasant it is for family members to live in harmony with each other” (Psalm 133:1, paraphrased).
List your closest family members, both the ones you live with and those you see often. Next to each name, write an attribute you appreciate about the person.
Manifest your gratitude:
Prayer for gratitude:
Dear heavenly Father, thank You for the family You placed me in. Help me to show my appreciation for each family member and be an encouragement to my parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins. They are important members of my family, and I want them to know I care about them!

Heavenly Father, thank You for ____ (specific family member). I really enjoy the way they ____ (name the attribute listed above). Please give them a wonderful day and make me a blessing and encouragement to them through my actions that show my appreciation. (If you like, you can add a personal line to your prayer.)
