A Thanksgiving Bible Study



This inspirational Thanksgiving Bible Study

highlights 

a powerful prayer pattern from Psalm 100.

~

Thanksgiving and Praise

are important parts of our relationship with the Lord.


As I have studied the Bible,
I have noticed that it contains several prayer patterns.
This devotional will share the pattern contained in Psalm 100.


"Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,

and into His courts with praise.

Be thankful to Him and bless His name."

Psalm 100:4


The prayer pattern in Psalm 100

is thankfulness and then praise.


Since I found that pattern, I sometimes use it in prayer.


I begin my prayer with thanking God.


For example:

I thank him for my home and my family.

I thank him for the sicknesses and physical conditions that he has healed me from.

I thank him for the good things he has placed in my life.

I thank him for the promises in the Bible.


Then

I praise God


For example I say:

"I praise you for you are the Almighty God.
I praise you for you are merciful and kind.
I praise you for you are Jehovah Rapha – the God who heals.
I praise you for you are the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords."


After I have thanked God for what he has already done

and

I praise him for who he is,

then

my focus is on how Loving, Kind, and POWERFUL God is.

~

I find that my mind is now prepared
to believe that God can and that he will
answer my prayer requests.


This pattern has reduced my doubts and increased my faith.


Following this prayer pattern:

When I first give thanks and then add praise to God, I find that as I give my requests to God, I am filled with a greater confidence that he will take care of my every need.

You might want to try this Thanksgiving Bible study prayer pattern for yourself.

As we look through the Bible, we can discover many prayer patterns that will enrich our prayer life.
