Paul’s letter to the saints at Colossae emphasizes that thanksgiving should be a part of continual prayer to God.
Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison– that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak. (Colossians 4:2-4 ESV)
The wonderful thing about our national day of Thanksgiving is that it is an 0pportunity for families to be together and reflect on the blessings of life. I trust that your day will be a good one.
