Bible Ballistics: BBs #313 My Thanksgiving Prayers!!!


I would simply like to share two of my favorite prayers from scripture with you today. I also pray that your Thanksgiving will be a time of reflection and gratitude, knowing that “my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” I pray that we all enjoy the beauty and love that God so abundantly blesses us with, and be sure to remember those who may be alone or struggling and reach out as you have opportunity. May our attitude of gratitude by totally contagious. I’m always reminded of my favorite church sign slogan: “Are you humbly grateful, or grumbly hateful?” The choice is yours.

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord,

all ye lands.

Serve the Lord

with gladness:

come before his presence

with singing.

Know ye that the Lord

he is God:

it is he that hath made us,

and not we ourselves;

we are his people,

and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter into his gates

with thanksgiving,

and into his courts

with praise:

be thankful

unto him,

and bless

his name.

For the Lord is good;

his mercy is everlasting;

and his truth endureth to all generations.”     Psalm 100

And my prayer for you, with Paul in Colossians 1:9-13

For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire

that ye might be filled with the knowledge

of his will

in all wisdom

and spiritual understanding;

10 That ye might walk worthy

of the Lord

unto all pleasing,

being fruitful in every good work,

and increasing in the knowledge of God;

11 Strengthened

with all might,

according to his glorious power,

unto all patience

and longsuffering

with joyfulness;

12 Giving thanks unto the Father,

which hath made us meet

to be partakers

of the inheritance

of the saints

in light:

13 Who hath delivered us

from the power of darkness,

and hath translated us

into the kingdom

of his dear Son:

14 In whom we have redemption

through his blood,

even the forgiveness of sins:
