Let’s start our prayer with praise and thanksgiving because unless we’re thankful for what we already have, we won’t have interest, desire, joy, strength and faith to ask more.
“Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And all that is within me, bless His holy name.
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget none of His benefits;
Who pardons all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases;
Who redeems your life from the pit,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion;
Who satisfies your years with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.” Psalm 103:1-5 NASB
