WEEK 3: Practicing everyday thanksgiving
Read Psalm 145:18-21
What stands out to you in reading this passage?
Name at least five promises contained in this prayer of David (in verses 18-21). Try “praying the scripture.” Take Psalm 145 and speak it to the Lord, changing and/or inserting pronouns as appropriate, for instance, your prayer might start this way:
“I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name forever and ever. Every day I will praise you and extol your name forever and ever.” (So far unchanged.) “Great is YOUR name, O Lord, and most worthy of praise; YOUR greatness…” etc.
Ask someone in your family how you can pray for them today and take some time to do that “on the spot” with them.
With a prayerful heart, write down 25 reasons to give God thanks today.
