Thanks, Prayer, and Evangelism

Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples! – 1 Chronicles 16:8

“You don’t know what you have until its gone” If I’ve heard it once I have heard it a million times! This statement seems to be true in most cases. We, as humans, really don’t take time to recognize the important things in our lives. This is certainly true for me. Often I walk through life oblivious to the things God has blessed me with. I have been given a fiance that loves me, family and friends that care for me and a church that supports me. I thank God for these people and we, as Christians, need to do that everyday.

When we do give thanks to God we are put in a position of prayer. Giving thanks is observing and expressing that we, as humans, are in need of a caregiver. We thank God because he is our Father. He gives us what we need and sometimes what we want. And this puts us in a position of prayer. When we acknowledge that God is infinitely greater than we are we are in the proper position to pray.

When we do give thanks and pray we will be ready to makes God’s deeds known. When we set our minds and hearts on God, through thanks and prayer, we will want to share His heart with those around us. Giving thanks and praying will make you and I a better evangelist. I am not saying you or I will be the next Billy Graham but I am saying that we will live a life of sharing our faith by giving thanks and living a life of prayer.

Be thankful, be prayerful, and share your faith.

Thanks for reading.
