Post Thanksgiving

“Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be UNTO HIM that sits upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.” Revelations 5:13

“Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful, UNTO HIM and bless his name.” Psalms l00:5

My heart is overflowing with praise this morning as I write this weekly letter to my church family and friends. I pray that it will be an encouragement to you to give praise unto Him for all he has done for you as well. Several years ago I ran across something that I have kept in my office and today, I want to share it with you as you read this letter. It is alphabet of personal prayers and it applies to all of us.

In other instances they are just humble mutterings but prayers none the less; as well as faith filled earnest appeals to heaven.

On another note, I thank you for your faithfulness to our faithful God. You are on my heart and in my prayers.
