Making it Personal
Prayer of Thanksgiving part 4
Prayer is our communication and more importantly our conversation with our Creator and Redeemer. This Thanksgiving Day, we need to give HIM our First Thanks.
The past 3 weeks we have been taking a look at prayer, and tonight, this thanksgiving eve, I believe we are to continue with that study. Although, my next look at prayer was to be about FASTING and prayer, but somehow, I don’t think I would get very far with the FASTING part with tomorrow being Thanksgiving day.
As a child, we learned to say Grace before we ate.
God is Great, God is Good, Now we thank HIM for our food. By HIS hands, we all are fed, Thank you LORD for our daily bread. Amen.
Then if we had already started to eat, and realized we hadn’t prayed yet
God is Good, God is Great, Thank you for the food we ate.
Such a simple prayer.
1. God is Great
2. God is Good
3. Thank Him
