Short time back we shared with you the power of Psalms and today we are back to underline, so to speak, the power of prayer and the power of Psalms to be part of our prayer life. Thursday many a prayer will be lifted up around the family table and among friends and associates. There will be Churches, groups and organizations that do their part in sharing the bounty of God’s table with those who are less fortunate than others.In preparation for this blog I was blessed to find that Psalms is a rich source of thankful prayers to God for the blessings and abundance of life itself and calling us to acknowledge the Goodness of our God through word and song.

As we gather and join hands to say a prayer of thankfulness for the food and blessings may we be reminded of the  Psalms of Thanksgiving to recall God’s blessings on us. You might say for us Christians it is a family tradition and means of expressing our trust in God… prayer in a way is our Ebenezer Stone. In 1 Thessalonians 5:18 “No matter what happens, always be thankful for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.” These are but a few of many. So I pray that you and yours will have a great Thanksgivings and use these Psalms of Thanksgiving in a prayer of gratitude before eating together or for greeting cards to loved ones. Give gratitude from the heart for the blessings of God!

Psalm 69:30 ~ I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving.

Psalm 100:1-5 ~ A Psalm for giving thanks. 

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.

Psalm 69:30 ~ 

I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving.

Psalm 111 ~ 

Praise the Lord. I will extol the Lord with all my heart in the council of the upright and in the assembly. Great are the works of the Lord; they are pondered by all who delight in them. Glorious and majestic are his deeds, and his righteousness endures forever. He has caused his wonders to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and compassionate. He provides food for those who fear him; he remembers his covenant forever. He has shown his people the power of his works, giving them the lands of other nations. The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy. They are established for ever and ever, enacted in faithfulness and uprightness. He provided redemption for his people; he ordained his covenant forever- holy and awesome is his name. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.

Life is Good
