Scripture Reading: Luke 17:17-18
Haven successfully completed the 21-day fasting and prayers for this year 2017, let’s start with show of gratitude for prayers answered. So take up your “Thank You Jesus” Rosary and pray it every day for the next nine days as from 12 midnight daily. You will experience God’s great presence, power and favour.
Jesus needs our appreciation. When He cured the 10 lepers only one person returned to give thanks to Him. He said to him “Were not all ten cleanse, were the other nine? Was no one found to return and give Praise to God except this Foreigner?” (Luke 17: 17-18). Jesus lamented that people were only after receiving but that they fail to show enough gratitude for the things that work well in their lives.
“1000 Thank you Jesus Prayer” inspired by Jesus to Bishop Gabriel Gasum Ganaka………Our Lord Jesus made it known to Bishop Gabriel Gasum that people ask for so many things at prayer sessions, BUT fail to say enough thanks especially for what he suffered at Gethsemane. He instructed that Bishop Gabriel should make it known to the whole world. He instructed us to say “1000 Thank You” Jesus to Him daily.
In the Catholic Church, there is a particular Rosary design for this prayer. It is very long, color coded Red and white. When we go through it 5 times we have said 1000 “Thank You Jesus”. If we are using an ordinary Rosary beads, we need to go round 17 times. It will give just above 1000 “ Thank you Jesus”. For non-Catholics who do not pray with beads, just sitting down quietly and saying Thank You Jesus repeatedly for about 35 to 40 minutes will sum up to about 1000 Thank You Jesus. I believe it is very powerful because it tells God that we TRUST him so much that He will grant our request and we are already thanking him for answering our prayers. For example; if you are praying for a job, STOP asking God to help you find a job, start thanking God for already granting you a job, If you are praying for a baby, STOP asking God to give you one, start thanking God for blessing you with a baby, etc, etc. By praying like this you PUT SATAN in Total Confusion and extol our heavenly Father who is always answering all our prayers. Instead of asking, start thanking. Believe in your Heart that God knows your problems better than you do; and start thanking him daily. There are so many testimonies happening to people who say this 1000 “Thank You Jesus” prayer; many more people are still receiving great favors

- Make a sign of the Cross, Kiss the Eucharistic Cross and say;
Our Lord Jesus Christ, I am here to thank you for what you have done for my life in the past, in the present and will do in the future; and also for what you suffered for me in Gethsemane. Finally, for giving yourself entirely as food for my soul, under the appearance of Bread and wine in the Holy Eucharist of the Blessed Sacrament.
- Start on the Red Bead with, “Oh, Thank You Jesus”, on all the white beads which is 10 before each single Red Bead say ” Thank You Jesus”
Say this Rosary 5 times (if you are using the “Thank you Jesus” Rosary) and it will be equal to 1000 “Thank You Jesus” as requested by our Lord. (If you are using ordinary Rosary beads, Say it seventeen times and it will be equal to just above 1000 “Thank You Jesus”).
- For non-Catholic say Thank You Jesus continuously for about 35 minutes and it will be equal to about 1000 “Thank You Jesus”
