Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! His faithful love endures forever. ~ 1 Chronicles 16:34
How often to you offer prayers of thanks to the Lord? He is good, and His love is constantly poured out upon us.
Next time you pray, try this exercise: instead of asking for the things that you need, share a prayer of gratitude, praise, and thanks.
It can be challenging to focus only on gratitude in a prayer. But, this practice helps you to recognize the things that the Lord has already blessed you with. Then, your heart will be opened so that you can receive more.
By starting each prayer with gratitude, you can ask for the things that you need and know that these things are in alignment with God’s will.
