God’s Word Give Thanks! – Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Prayer Proverbs 26 Joy in All Things! *
Heavenly Father,
We rejoice with much love and thanksgiving!  We will give thanks to you Lord because you are good and your love endures all things.  You change the times and the seasons, and the heart of the king is in your hand. Thank you for stirring the king’s heart toward love and good deeds… Thank you for showing your children mercy… Thank you for loving us so much that you gave your one and only sun to die for us on the cross at Calvary.  Help us Father to be more like Jesus, loving one another deeply and forgiving one another as you have forgiven us. Like snow in summer or rain in harvest, honor is not fitting for a fool. Your daughters will not honor a fool.  Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow, an undeserved curse does not come to rest. Thank you, Father, for your protection from the undeserved curse of a fool.  A whip for the horse, a halter for the donkey, and a rod for the backs of fools! Your daughters will not answer a fool according to their folly, or we will not be like them our self. If we answer a fool according to their folly, they will be wise in their own eyes.  Like cutting off one’s feet or drinking violence is the sending of a message by the hand of a fool. We will be mindful and not send a message by the hand of a fool.  We will be joyful always, we will pray continually; we will give thanks in all circumstances, for this is your will for us in Christ Jesus. We thank you for your love and mercy. We also thank you for your provision and our daily bread in our lives.  In Jesus name we pray… Amen!

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
Love in Christ,
Jennifer Pettiford
