Praying the Bible ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Praying through verses or passages of the Bible is a great way to help you pray according to the will and desires of God. Below is a passage of Scripture and a sample prayer. I would encourage you to pray that prayer, or, even better, read the passage and pray as God leads you.

Text: 1 Thessalonians 5:18
Give thanks in everything; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (Christian Standard Bible)

Prayer
Father, as we have come to another Thanksgiving holiday may we remember that everyday is to be a day of thanksgiving to you. Thank you for creating us to be objects of your love. Thank you for your love for us while we were still sinners by giving Jesus to die for our rebellion against you. Thank you for making us your precious sons and daughters through faith in Jesus when being a servant in your house would be more than we deserved. Thank you for caring for us each day and for shaping our hearts to be more like Jesus. Thank you for your word and your unfailing promises. Thank you that one day Jesus will return and right all wrongs as he restores creation. Father, thank you. Amen.
