Thanksgiving Prayer Points – December Practical Prayer Assignment

Thanksgiving Prayer Points


Psalm 118:1-10 
O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever. Let Israel now say, that his mercy endureth for ever. Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy endureth for ever. Let them now that fear the Lord say, that his mercy endureth for ever. I called upon the Lord in distress: the Lord answered me, and set me in a large place. The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me? The Lord taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me. It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes. All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the Lord will I destroy them.

Thanksgiving  is a very important subject in the Bible. The Bible has encourages us to thank God and magnify his great works in our lives.

Every time we pray, praise and worship, we must remember to thank him for his unfailing love, mercy, protection, provision, joy, victory, open doors.

Even when it seems nothing is working, it’s very important to praise and worship in mysterious ways. Those that takes thanksgiving as their habit will continually seeing the hand of God in their lives. In Psalms 92:1, the Bible says, It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: The truth is, your prayer is not complete without thanksgiving. Until thanking God is your daily habit, you cannot receive daily blessings from God. From January to December, you should thank God for his mercies. You go out and come back successfully, you should appreciate your father for keeping you safe and your day peaceful. So, do not take everything for granted, as you pray everyday, learn to practice the act of thanksgiving. It will help you a lot in life and destiny.

Thanksgiving Prayer Points

Prayers of giving thanks are indeed important as we all have reasons to be thankful. Thanksgiving, praise and prayers always go together. We cannot adequately praise and worship God without also being thankful and prayerful. Training ourselves to be thankful  and prayerful does so many good things.

First, it gives us the ability to appreciative. Second, it makes God to see us as a grateful person. And also Thirdly, it gives us supernatural strength to face and overcome the challenges of life. The more you thank God, the more the joy that is released in you. Joyful thanksgiving creates an atmosphere for God’s power to fill your life. If you thank God for what He’s done for you, or what He’s about to do, your ought to prepare yourself for more from Him.

Gratitude to God makes you a candidate for more blessings from Him. Gratitude is a right attitude. Nobody wants to bless an ungrateful fellow. In the Bible, Jesus gave thanks to God before distributing the bread and fish to five thousand people who came to hear him teach (John 6:11). That’s why whatever we need to do to God, we must first the prayer of praise and worships.

Some people do not concern themselves with the habit of showing thanksgiving to God and man. They are only interested in a part of prayers. Sometimes, God might say all what you need to do for Him is to thank and appreciate for His act of blessings upon your life. If, however, you choose to pray, you may not get the benefits of thanking Him at the point in time.

Giving thanks to God gives the power to do much more for you.  Are you thankful no matter what you are facing at the moment? Perhaps you have lost your job recently. Or you may have lost your marriage. Maybe you feel your prayers have lost God’s attention. Such circumstances can be tremendously difficult. But even so, we all have much to be thankful for. The psalmist declared, “Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving” (Psalm 147:7,). Paul wrote, “Be thankful” (Colossians 3:15). A spirit of thanksgiving is always a thing of a joyful Christian.
