1. Psalm 9:1-2 “I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonders. I will be glad and exult in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.” Father, truly we have numerous reasons to offer our thanks to You. We acknowledge Your abundant provision and the wonders all around us. Thank You for creation, people, lands, nature and the universe. We praise You for both the simple and complex blessings in our lives. Thank You for allowing us to have fellowship with You, for blessing us with families, and for times of celebration.
2. Hebrews 13:15 “Through Him then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name.” Father God, because praise is honoring to You and You are worthy of our praise, receive our praise and teach us how to live in continual praise and thanksgiving.
3. 1 Timothy 2:1 “First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings be made on behalf of all men.” Lord God, we are coming to You asking that those who do not know You will have opportunity to hear and understand Your truth. Would You help us to be alert to those around us that are waiting to hear? Help us to be bold witnesses who are sensitive to Your Spirit’s leading.
