This is the audio from the November 5, 2021 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
Colossians 3:17 (NIV)
As we approach the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday later this month, our prayer focus for the next few weeks will take another look at some of our previous prayer guides on giving thanks. As with all of these prayer guides, this is not something that we should pray about for a week or so and then dismiss. God’s desire is that we give thanks in all circumstances at all times. Giving thanks shows our appreciation not only for what God has done, but for what He is doing and what He will do. This week we will focus each day on something different the Bible says God’s people should give thanks for.
As you pray, examine your typical level of thankfulness and ask God to help you grow in gratitude. Pray that you would recognize God’s hand in providing with the opportunities for all you do. Pray that you would be thankful for every word and deed that God allows you to do through Jesus.
