How to Get in a Thanksgiving State of Mind (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #183)

Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Philippians 4:6 which reads: “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Henry Melville. He said: “Praise is the best auxiliary to prayer; and he who most bears in mind what has been done for him by God will be most emboldened to supplicate fresh gifts from above.”

In light of the Thanksgiving holiday, our devotional today is titled “HOW TO GET IN A THANKSGIVING STATE OF MIND”. This is a piece that I wrote some years ago regarding Thanksgiving for my book “Money Under the Car Seat And Other Things To Thank God For”. Allow me to share it with you now:

When I wrote this essay some time back I left out one interesting little fact, and that is, that I am the least likely individual to write anything about a holiday, much less a book. I say that simply because throughout my adult life, I have never celebrated any holidays including Christmas, not for any religious convictions, but, probably simply because I find holidays and birthdays vain, and a colossal waste of energy, money, and time. In fact, this will shock you, there were certain holidays that I used to hate to see come around, simply because places like the bank and the post office would shut down for no good reason, in my humble opinion.

Yes, I was a literal Scrooge and still am to some degree, I guess.
