[When one of the healed lepers came back to thank Jesus,] Jesus asked, "Didn't I heal ten men? Where are the other nine? Has no one returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?" And Jesus said to the man, "Stand up and go. Your faith has healed you."
— Luke 17: 17-19 NLT
"Where are the other nine?" During his earthly ministry, Jesus said some sad things that tear our hearts apart:
"Simon son of John, do you love me?" 
"Judas, would you betray the Son of Man with a kiss?" 
"My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?" 
"Father, I entrust my spirit into your hands!" 
Each of these is agonizing. Unfortunately, Jesus frequently has to keep saying things like, "Where are the other nine?" Many of us go to the Father using the name and authority of Jesus and ask for many things great and small. In great love and mercy, the Father and the Son often bless us with precisely what we ask of them. Yet, with so many blessings lavished on us, our prayers remain focused on getting more rather than thanking and praising the Father and the Son for their generosity and grace. I'm sure they are hurt by having to ask the constant question of heaven, "Where are the thanks?"
Almighty God and loving Father, forgive me for my self-centered preoccupation. You have blessed me with so much, and I seem to thank you for so little. I praise you for your selfless love, your abundant mercy, your costly grace, your faithfulness to your promises, and your assurance of my future with you. Thank you for your Holy Spirit who intercedes right now as I pray and who strengthens, equips, leads, and empowers me. Thank you for the breath I breathe, the food I eat, the clothes I wear, and the place I lay my head at night. For these, and thousands of other blessings from your hand, I thank you. In Jesus name. Amen.
