A Prayer of Thanksgiving and Praise

Day 1




Text: 1 Thessalonians 5.16-18: “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”


Teaching: Always have God in the forefront of your mind. Be ready at a moments notice to seek His counsel. When some news of joy or sadness comes our way, is our immediate response to pray? Never forget that we need to give God thanks for everything we have on a daily basis.


Action Today:  Answer these questions:

  • How often do I seek God’s counsel on a daily basis?  
  • Do I consider God in all decisions I make? What kind of example do I set for others? Is praying my first thought when a problem or a blessing suddenly comes?
