Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

entering heaven's gates

Enter His gates with thanksgiving And His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name. For the LORD is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting And His faithfulness to all generations. (Psalms 100:4-5)

The theme of thanksgiving and praise is one that permeates all of scripture. It is a way to pray that directs our focus heavenward. The Lord's prayer is a great example of how we should begin our prayers with praise. When we thank and praise the Lord it sets our heart in a good place.. a place of hope and expectation. We open heaven's gates when we praise Him. Please join me in praying these words.

We hallow your name Father and remember that you are worthy of all praise and honor. In unison we say that You are good. You are compassionate. You care for us with a deep love. We confess our love, adoration and worship of You. We offer our lives to you afresh and ask for Your kingdom to come and Your will to be done in our lives.

  1. Thank you for this reminder about being thankful. I was reminded of how many times "Fear not!" is in the Bible, as well as, 'Give thanks!" Thankfulness is a good antidote for fear.

      I like that Karen.
