Thank You For This…

For the last few weeks, my two year old daughter has wanted to pray for all the meals.

The prayer is short and sweet and goes like this, “Dear Lode, tank ooh for dis. Amen.”

Dear Lord, thank you for this.  We are trying to teach her to be a little more specific and she will get there eventually.  But for right now, it’s a good prayer to have stuck in my head and heart.  Lord… thank you for this.

We all have “this” going on in our lives.  We can look to our situations, our blessings, our issues, our troubles, the valley we are in, etc and then be reminded that in all things we should be thankful.

Thankfulness is a theme in Scripture.  Colossians talks about devoting ourselves to prayer and being thankful.  Colossians chapter 3 says, Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts… and be thankful.

Find ways to pray, even in the tough times, “Dear Lord, thank you for this”.

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thes. 5:16-18
