Happy Thanksgiving! What Are You Thankful For?
Thanking God for All His Blessings!
Enjoy the above video “Thankful” by The Skit Guys –
and may we all give God the thanks and praise due His glorious name!
“Blessed are you, LORD God… forever and ever.
Yours, O LORD is the greatness, and the power,
and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty;
for all that is in the heaven and earth is yours;
yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exhalted
as head above all. Both riches and honor come of you,
and you reign over all; and in your hand is power
and might; and in your hand it is to make great,
and to give strength to all. Now therefore, our God,
we thank you, and praise your glorious name.”
— 1 Chronicles 29:10-13

P.P.S. Here is a little bit of History about Thanksgiving Day
Acknowledge the Almighty God with Thanksgiving
Who Was the First U.S. President to Declare a National Day of Thanksgiving?
In light of celebrating Thanksgiving here in the U.S. tomorrow, I thought I’d share a bit of history I ran across recently at Paul’s Primer. (Be sure to check out his site for more details.)
So do you know who the first U.S. President was to declare a National Day of Thanksgiving?
Thursday, November 26th was proclaimed the first Thanksgiving Day by President George Washington on October 3, 1789, and designated by the national government of the United States of America.
“Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor, and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me ‘to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.’” — President George Washington
President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be celebrated on the last Thursday in November of 1863, and since then it has been observed annually in the United States.
The above proclamation by President George Washington is so powerful!
Just think if the majority of us were still practicing this today?
- Acknowledging the providence of the Almighty God
- Obeying His will
- Grateful for His benefits
- Humbly requesting His protection and favor
- Government representatives requesting this of the people
- Public thanksgiving and prayer to God
- Acknowledging with grateful hearts the many favors of the Almighty God
- Thanking God for a peaceable government for our safety and happiness
May we all, with grateful hearts, acknowledge the Almighty God with the Thanksgiving He deserves!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours –
God bless you,

Prayer Requests with Thanksgiving to God
“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication
with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
And the peace of God, which passes all understanding,
shall keep you hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
This video is about 1-1/2 minutes.
A favorite couple of verses that tell us not to be anxious about anything, but let our requests be made known to God with thanksgiving and then the peace of God will keep our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus!
May you be encouraged & enjoy the peace of God!
Prayer Requests & Praises to God
Do you have a prayer request or a praise report you’d like to share?
Well I’ve added a new page on the site for you to post these on.
Go here to leave your Prayer Requests.
James 5:16 says “… pray for one another … the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”
I will be in prayer with you and ask that you also pray for others as you leave your requests. Feel free to also leave your praise reports and thanks to God for answered prayers…
The power of prayer is real and may we all strive to be prayer warriors!
