Once a month I have the privilege of opening my home for a time of prayer. I look forward to these evenings, where I can spend an hour with friends, covering a topic in prayer. Last night our topic was on thanksgiving. Here is the outline I used as we thanked God for His many blessings toward us.
Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving… For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods… O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker. Psalm 95:2,3,&5
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. Psalm 100:4-5
-Thank God for who He is to you: He is merciful and gracious to us, He is our provider, our comforter, our shelter…
-Thank God for our husbands in their role as husbands to us.
-Thank God of our husbands in their role as father to our children.
-Thank God for our children: how He has made them, what they are teaching us.
-Thank God for your job and/or your husband’s job and his willingness to work.
-Thank God for our churches, our pastors: that God has provided us with places to worship Him and to know Him through the teaching of His Word.
-Thank God for the wonderful country He has allowed us to be apart of. Praise Him for the freedom we have.
-Thank God for the trials He allows to strengthen and develop us.
-Thank God for your home: big or small, complete or lacking.
-Thank God for the vehicle that you drive.
-Thank God for your extended family.
-Thank God for the people with whom you will share Thanksgiving.
Because of Jesus,
