Giving Thanks: Do You?

     Mentioned in many other posts, I have explained the importance of Prayer everyday.  Prayer is truly the heart of a Christian Life. It takes courage, and a humble heart to ask God to forgive us over and over. It is in prayer that we go before Jesus and share our troubles, worries, and blessings.

     What do most young children think about on her/his Birthday or Christmas? THE PRESENTS! They are so often focused on the presents that they will be opening. They guess quickly of what could be inside, as their excitement builds up they can't wait to tear the wrapping and see whats inside. Filled with excitement and have given up on guessing , they are quick to say Thank you, and then open up the present.


     Like a child, we often do the same thing with God, during prayer. We are often quick in thanking God for what he has given us, and move quickly onto asking God for whatever we want in our day. Quickly pushing aside the thanking, and welcoming the asking side.

     I LOVE seeing different bloggers that have a thankful list going on that they add onto at each post. It shows that they put aside the asking, and they look what they have and are thankful for it. The stop, and look, to see how great things are.


"Continue steadfastly in prayer, 
being watchful in it with thanksgiving."

Colossians 4:2

     During prayer let us take a long moment to Thank God for what he has given us; Spiritual and Material. God gives us more than we need everyday without limitations. He takes care of us; more than a mother does with a new born baby. It is out duty then, to pray in thanksgiving to God. 


Below, I have written a Thanksgiving Prayer:

Living and Wonderful God,
Creator of the spectacular World,
Source of All life,
Giver of all Grace,

To you we offer our Thanks Giving;
For the many gifts you have blest me with. 
Without you, O Lord, we are nothing, 
and so with my whole heart O God,
Thank You for The many and
beautiful gifts you have given me.

Blessed be your name God of the Earth, 
Whom is the source of Blessings and Forgiveness.
You are always pouring out the Holy Spirit on each of me to fill our hearts with: 
Strength, Hope, Comfort, Love, A Kind Heart,  Guidance, Peace, and Forgiveness. 
It is through your Love for me, your adopted Son/Daughter, that you let your Spirit reside on me. 
I Thank you, for the many Blessings Father, that you give me that guides and helps me 
on my daily path of Life. 

Father, Brother, Savior, Abba, Rabbi 
Thank You for EVERYTHING you do and have done for me!!!

Blessed be your name O God now and forever!

AMEN




Give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

1 Thessalonians 5:18
