The late Derek Prince once said, “If you only have ten minutes to pray make eight of them praise”. Faith never probates praise and thanksgiving. Faith is “fully persuaded that He who promised is well able to perform” and thanks God in advance. I’ll bet “thanks Father” garners more attention in heaven than “please God” any day. Let’s determine to maintain an attitude of gratitude and be in that company of believers who “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise”. Pray for peace, prosperity, power and protection for the body of believers called Hope Fellowship Church, our leaders, our community and country. And however long you pray, praise and give thanks at least as long, “for He is good and His mercy endures forever”.
