Luke 17:20-37

Luke 17:20-37

Lord, I just ask that You would put it in our hearts to be thankful... I just ask that as we pray, we would also praise; as we ask, we would also thank; as we see You bless us, that we would be quick to show...how grateful we truly are.Father, in Jesus name, I thank You and praise You. I thank You for Your Word. I thank You once again, Lord, for the encouragement that comes from Your Word, the knowledge that it gives to us of a Day that’s coming. Thank You for being honest, first telling us that You would suffer and die so that now we, a couple thousand years later, we look back and see the truth of what You did on the cross and that, Lord, we can now participate with that body of believers You have called your bride. Thank You, Lord, for giving us this opportunity to have a special place in Your kingdom and in Your heart. We look forward, Lord, to that day that we hear the trumpet call, and we find ourselves standing with You. And, Lord, I just ask that we would be very proactive in sharing Your love and Your Word with those that do not believe…

And Lord, I just ask that You would put it in our hearts to be thankful… I just ask that we would be quick to praise and worship You for what You’ve saved us from…and the life, Lord, that You’re going to give us eternally with You. I just ask, Lord, that as we pray, that we would also praise. As we ask, we would also thank. As we see You give and bless us in our lives, that we would be quick to show to the world and to You how grateful we truly are. But Lord, I fear that the time in this world has crept up on many of us…that our hearts have become hard and we’ve become unconcerned, and though You do great things for us and You bless us tremendously, we are so busy thinking of just ourselves that we miss when You do those things for us. Show us, Lord, how to correct this. Spark a fire in our heart through Your Spirit, that would cause us to truly be thankful. To pull ourselves off of that central place in our life, that we would stop being self-centered and allow for You to rule and reign and be thankful for it and be open about it. Thank You and praise You for today. I thank You for Your Word. I thank You, Lord, that we’ve been able to gather together and praise You together. I just ask, Lord, that it wouldn’t stop here.
