Thank God When We Pray

Apr. 30, 2020 @ 7:48 pm

When someone does something nice for us, we say thank you. When we receive a gift at Christmas or on our birthdays, the polite thing to do is send a thank you note. How can we possibly begin to thank God for all the things He does for us? When we pray, we need to always begin with thanks, letting God know how grateful we are for His blessings.

Question Time

Has someone thanked you for something this week?
When was the last time you said thank you for something?
What is one thing you can thank God for right now?

At the end of his life, David said a prayer of thanks in front of his people for all God had done for him. David's life had as many downs as ups, but he never forgot all of God's blessings.

Scripture 1 Chronicles 29:10-20

Let's follow David's example. Let's thank God when we pray.

Next Steps

Every time you say a prayer this week, thank God for something. You can thank Him for Jesus, for our church, for our home, for family, for friends, for any number of things. The more we thank God, the more our faith will grow as we remember all His blessings.
