We thank Thee

It is common in my church to pray at the start of church meetings.

At one such meeting, I heard the following in the prayer:
We ask Thee to bless us with all other things that we stand in need of.
and I couldn't help but think how it would sound if someone prayed the following:
We thank Thee for all the things we've fogotten to, or that we didn't think to thank Thee for.
The second kind of prayer would be a more appropriate sentiment.
