Through the month of November our Sunday Prayer Time will be focused on having a grateful heart. The Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 that we are to, “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”.
Prayer Time: Give Thanks
I pray that you help me to remember to rejoice always. It is easy to allow my circumstances to dictate how happy I am. My happiness comes from You alone and not from the things that are going on in my life.
I ask you Lord to help me to pray continually to You. All things that I have in life that is good are from You. When life is difficult, I need to pray more and when life is easy, I need to pray more. I sometimes forget that the time I talk to You is how our relationship grows.
I cry out dear Lord that you give me a heart to thank You in all things. Whether good or bad, they can be used for Your Will and Your purpose. For that Lord, I want to give thanks to You always. Help me to see that giving thanks is a part of Your Will for my life. This does not mean just thanking You for the good things but to also give thanks for the times of trouble as well.
Help me to see the value in learning how to give thanks to you in all that is in my life. I know that doing that means that I am not taking Your love for granted.Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Heavenly Father, I want to give thanks for your Son, Jesus Christ. Thank you for sending Him to die in order to pay the price for my sin. I cannot give thanks enough for this gift that You have given.
Lord, I also ask that you open my heart to learn Your Word and to find Your Will for my life. Help me to be a living testimony to the people that are around me. Also help me to continually be grateful and to give thanks in all things.
In these things I humbly pray,
