If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “thank you,” that would suffice.
Develop a thankful heart and give thanks for every one in your life, and you will soon find that you have more and more to be thankful for, lacking in nothing.
Thought for the day
The apostle Paul tells us that we must be thankful in all things, not necessarily for all things. Can you see the difference? Being thankful in all things demands that we sometimes acknowledge that even though what we are going thru really stinks or perhaps hurts, we are going to look for God in it, which will make it a lot easier to get through it. As soon as we are through it, and we will get through it, we will see how our character has in fact grown through the experience and we now stand ready to help others get through the exact or similar issues.
And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; ~Ephesians 5:18-20~
Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
For everything God has created is good, and nothing is to be thrown away or refused if it is received with thanksgiving. For it is hallowed and consecrated by the Word of God and by prayer. ~1 Timothy 4:4,5 (Amp)~
