Prayer of Praise and Thanksgiving

  • Spend the first few moments praising God and giving thanks.  Let’s not rush into asking for anything until we have recognized God’s goodness, faithfulness and favor in our lives.

John 15:16  You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit--fruit that will last--and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.
