Thankful Thursday ~ Prayer

“In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints.” ~ Ephesians 6:16-18 (ESVemphasis mine)

I am not sure what happened between last Thursday and this week. Everything seems like a blur to me. I am very sorry that I have not made it to all of your posts this past week (only about 80%) – I will try to do better this week.

Over the last couple of weeks, the subject of prayer kept coming up…so I thought to share my thankfulness about prayer with you…

  • I am thankful that our Lord, Jesus Christ, made a way that we can approach the throne of grace 24/7-365. Because of His blood we have a ‘direct-connect’; no voice-mail…
  • I am thankful that God hears our prayers. Although I might not ‘like’ His answer, I know that His answer is always perfect…
  • I am thankful that I have friends who will lift me up in prayers when ever I need them…thanks Lynn, TNChick and Laurel 🙂 …
  • I am thankful that my friends approach me when they are in need of prayers…
  • I am thankful for prayer sites like “PrayItCards“. They have wonderful prayer-cards that you can pray for family, friends and perfect strangers…
  • I am thankful for Sharon sharing this wonderful prayer couple weeks ago. I just love it and hope to memorize this prayer for my morning prayers…
  • Last but not least I am thankful I have found this wonderful prayer guide to pray for my beloved…Thank you Denise and Shari for sharing it on your blogs…

(Little side-note – I am thankful for tabbed browsing which makes the linking in a blog-post much easier 😛 )

What are you thankful for this week? Please do share with us in leaving your link to your Thankful Thursday post below. Thank you for stopping by today and being part of the Thankful Thursday bunch…

    Prayer is indeed something we should all be thankful for. I remember an old song titled “Living on A Prayer”. I guess most of us are probably doing just that. Oh but thank the Lord we serve a true and living God that not only hears our prayers but answers them ..in due time..to. Thanks so much Iris for hosting this and by doing so encouragin so many that need it, like me ;-).

  6. wow. I just found your site in my blog travels and am happily surprised to find a whole community of people participating in Thankful Thursdays! We set Thursday aside as a special day of thanksgiving as our family focus, and I have recently begun incorporating that into my blog as well, and calling it, of all things, “Thankful Thursday!” but now that I’ve found y’all I’ll try to link to you and not “go it alone” 😀 Blessings.
