Prayer, Part 3

As Colossians 4:2 reminds us, we should live life in a spirit of thankfulness. Even when we are hurting deeply or depressed, we can find some thing(s) for which to be thankful. The most obvious would be our salvation. I challenge you to join me in thinking of at least one thing each day, for which to thank God.

Psa. 92:1-2 (NASB) It is good to give thanks to the LORD And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High; 2 To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning And Your faithfulness by night.

Psa. 26:6-7 (NASB) I shall wash my hands in innocence, And I will go about Your altar, O LORD, 7 That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving And declare all Your wonders.

Psa. 9:1 (NASB) I will give thanks to the LORD with all my heart; I will tell of all Your [wonders.

Psa. 95:2 (NASB) Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.

Phil. 4:6 (NASB) Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

Col. 4:2 (NASB) Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving.

Neh. 12:46 (NASB) For in the days of David and Asaph, in ancient times, there were leaders of the singers, songs of praise and hymns of thanksgiving to God.

Rev. 7:12 (NASB) Amen, blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen.
