December 16, 2013. Giving thanks continually as a part of your daily prayer is as good a spiritual discipline as you can find. Do you have a difficult time being thankful in all circumstances? Though difficult, I choose to join the ranks of King David in the early morning prayers. I repent (our pastor stressed this yesterday in his sermon and prayers). Scripture clearly says we are to continually be thankful “in” (but does not say “for”) all things whether in a festival, prison, high worship service or when there is great loss or gain financially or an unexpected medical issue.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NLT) “Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.” Ras Robinson
