Thankful Thursday: Daily Blessings

Praying

The Daily Blessing for which I'm most thankful is...Prayer, hands down! (No pun intended!) How could I live without prayer? Communication with my Heavenly Father is one of the greatest blessings in my life. He is wise, He comforts me, He hears me any time of day or night. He is there and knows my cares and shares my pain. He has the power to change...me. And cares for everything that concerns me.


What A Friend We Have In Jesus
What a Friend We have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer!

Have we trials or temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged,
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness,
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

Are we weak and heavy-laden,
Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Saviour, still our refuge--
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer;
In His arms He'll take and shield thee,
Thou wilt find a solace there.
Joseph Scriven, 1819-1886
Charles C. Converse, 1832-1918
  
Luke 18:1 "And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint."

Romans 8:26 "Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered."

1Thessalonians 5:17 "Pray without ceasing."

James 5:16 "Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much."

It's Thankful Thursday today and Iris at Grace Alone is hosting this month. (Thank you, Iris!) We're sharing on Daily Blessings for which we're thankful! Please visit her site to participate and read other thankful posts!

Amen..... Thankful as well to be able to talk to our precious Savior any time... Day or Night. Wonderful that he is always there whenever we call upon him. Never is he to busy for us but always right on time! Be blessed and will stop back by soon,

Holly, Isn't it the best thing? "Never is He too busy for us"--I appreciate that so much, as even those closest to me at times are just too busy to really *talk*! And He knows my heart! What a blessing!
