Praying touches God's heart - He will respond if we are truthfull and commited, but it may take some or relativelly long time, according to His will.Prayer should also be complemented with thanksgiving - we most likely do not know what we have until we loose it: peace, health, family, frends, job... There are so many people which are in much worse situations than we and would like to have it as good as we do , but we only look at those we see or assume have it better than we - those same people might think the same things about some other people having it better. We should remain content and steadfast in prayer and always giving thanks to God through Jesus Christ.

Thanksgiving is a key to move the hand of God to favour us

This is amazing, god is wonderful. I urge you all who read this, all of you who feel sad, lonely, unhappy, disappointed, all of you who have lost all of the hope u had in the Lord - praise him, even in the hard times. Even if he feels far away and that he has let you down, he is still there. <3

Pray, praise and thank him even more and you will see him and hear him the more you seek him. As my pastor said: You have to seek Him, before he seeks you. God bless you all. Amen


Rev. Donald Greene's comment on 2013-11-23 09:18:43:

When we come to the point in our relationship with Jesus Christ that we trust him with all our heart,mind,soul,and strength , we will give him thanks for all things because no matter what the circumstance looks like what we are going through, we have the victory.

God knew us before we were formed, he knows what we can bear; we are encouraged to give thanks in everything because there is a reward in doing that, the most important thing tho, is to find the strength and courage to do it when the trials are at its peak; know what?, practice makes perfect, lets be thankful and praise our God through it all.

bruce seru's comment on 2013-05-22 20:14:25:

give in every season good or bad rich or poor happy or sad because it is the will of GOD concerning you


John Radcliffe's comment on 2013-05-21 13:01:11:

In giving thanks, we remind ourselves that God is in control and that he has a purpose in whatever circumstance we find ourselves. Knowing that He has a purpose, we are reminded to seek His purpose and our place in within it. Giving thanks is the first step in yielding to the will of God.

I have found that in my deepest trials the outcomes always brought forth tremendously fulfilling fruit. The hard part was the disappointing strife.


henry's comment on 2012-11-19 14:31:30:

It is so true because you should give thanks to God, no matter what.
