Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
One act of thanksgiving, when things go wrong with us, is worth a thousand thanks when things are agreeable to our inclinations.
~Saint John of Avila
I'm learning that all prayer should begin with Thanksgiving... giving continually thanks doesn't leave room for all the negative things that surround us.  Lord let me live a life of Thanksgiving! Amen.

Please visit The Prayer List and pray with us.


  1. Amen. There is much to be thankful for. Even in the midst of the storm.

  2. An attitude of gratitude is a wonderful thing to develop in ones life :-)

  3. If you have a roof over your head, food on the table, clothes on your back, and a few parts that aren't aching, you're blessed! I know I am!


  4. ah, yes - thanksgiving is the start of an attitude of prayer.

    love the picture of the 'birds of paradise' - my daddy's favorite flower and they graced his casket... thanks for the memory of my sweet daddy!
