Something to think about.....
The Best Way to Begin in Prayer
"They are also to stand every morning to thank and praise the Lord, and likewise at evening." 1 Chronicles 23:30.
No matter what we pray for, thanksgiving can always go with it. A good habit to develop is starting all of our prayers with thanksgiving. An example of this could be "Thank You, Father, for all You have done in my life; You are awesome and I really love an appreciate You."
I encourage you to examine your life, to pay attention to your thoughts and your words, and to see how much thanksgiving you express. Do you murmur and complain about things or are you thankful?
If you want a challenge, just try to get through an entire day without uttering one word of complaint. Develop an attitude of thanksgiving in every situation. In fact, just become outrageously thankful__ and watch as your intimacy with God increases and as He pours out greater blessings than ever before.
