June Prayer Points for thanksgiving, gratitude

Gratefulness in any relationship is key to its success. Who wants to be in a relationship in


which they do all the giving yet never hears a word of thanks? Surely the giver would grow
weary of always giving to someone who doesn't acknowledge the hard work that their
partner puts in. Our relationship with our heavenly Father is not very different. The gifts we
receive from him are countless, from waking up in the morning, to the warmth of the sun,
from the cool breeze on a hot day to the warm embrace of a loved one's touch. Thanks, isnt
always about the big things- the promotion, the new house or the healthy new-born baby.
Giving thanks is about everything. For as James 1:17 says, "Every good and perfect gift
comes from above."
In the bible, Jesus himself tells the parable of the ten lepers (Luke 17: 11-19). Ten men beg
Jesus to have mercy on them and heal them from their leprosy and Jesus heals them. Of the
ten men, only one returned to give thanks. So this month when Jesus asks, "Were there not
any found who returned to give glory to God?" I dare you to be that one that comes back
and gives thanks to God for the work he does in your life. Doesn't He deserve the glory?
James 1:17
Luke 17: 11-19- Parable of the 10 lepers
1 Thessalonians 5:18- Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ
Jesus.
Psalm 100:4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him
and praise his name- (When you enter into his gates and into his presence, praise is a
prerequisite. )
Psalm 136: 1-3
Philippians 4:6-8
Romans 1:21- For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave
thanks to him but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.
