Are you a thankful person? I like to think that I am thankful, but I am not sure that my conversation and thoughts always prove that to be true. In fact, if you and I pay attention during our prayers, we will notice that our prayers of thanksgiving quickly turn into prayers of request.
We know how to do it! We start out saying thank you to God and quickly move into the area of trying to move God to move on our behalf. Between now and thanksgiving, I am going to be working on genuinely being more thankful and I want to invite you to join me.
Take some time this week to listen to your conversations and prayers. Ask yourself this question: Am I really thankful? If we are really thankful, then we and others will hear it, in and through our conversations.
