Sometimes I don’t know how to pray or for what I should pray. It is in those moments that I can always give God thanks for the many blessings I have so I am never without an opportunity to pray. That kind of prayer is something I can do all day long as I reflect on His goodness, mercy and grace. Whenever I find myself complaining, I am reminded by the Holy Spirit that complaining is an exponential problem. Just as I always have good things to thank the Lord for, there are many things that I can complain about if I want to go down that road. It is my earnest prayer that He will always remind me how unfruitful complaining is and bring me back to being grateful.
“Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song.”
“Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; His gratefulness continues through all generations.”
