“So not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”Philippians 4:6
Can you remember a one-sided relationship? Where you gave and gave, but the only person seems to be only focused on what they received out of their time with you? How did you feel?
I’ve been on both ends in my life. I have used and been used by people, so imagine how God must feel when all He hears is our list. And still, He hears our cries.
Paul tells us to ask “with thanksgiving”.
When was the last time you counted all the blessings God has provided – even in the hard times?
Today is the first workday of the new year, so there’s no time like the present. Take a few minutes and write down some of the reasons you can give thanks and watch the list grow.
Keep that list with your prayer list.
