One of the keys to prayer and fasting is gratitude.
Before we ask God for a single thing, we should start by thanking Him for what He has already done!
Psalm 143:5 says, “I remember the days of old; I meditate on all that you have done; I ponder the work of your hands.”
Looking back at what God has done in our lives serves as a reminder of all the ways God has been faithful. And when we remind ourselves about how good God is, we can’t help but thank Him!
As we enter into God’s presence with thanksgiving and praise, we will experience even more of His joy and true happiness in our lives!
God's Word says that "Since we are receiving our rights to an unshakeable kingdom we should be extremely thankful and offer God the purest worship that delights his heart as we lay down our lives in absolute surrender, filled with awe." (Hebrews 12:28)
Gratitude moves us forward, and keeps our eyes on Jesus. Why don't you take this time to write the many ways God has blessed and led you up to this point, and give thanks for how far He has taken you? And imagine! His BEST is yet to come! Oh how He loves us!
