"Gratitude and prayer go hand in hand. When Jesus taught His disciples how to pray, He started with thanks." (The Prayer Motivator Minute #489)

Released: November 28, 2013 By: The Prayer Motivator Minute

Someone said, "You will find all throughout Scripture that gratitude and prayer go hand in hand. When Jesus taught His disciples how to pray, He started with thanks."

Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is II Corinthians 1:11 which says: "Ye also helping together by prayer for us, that for the gift bestowed upon us by the means of many persons thanks may be given by many on our behalf."

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Dietrich Bonhoeffer. He said, "We prevent God from giving us the great spiritual gifts He has in store for us, because we do not give thanks for daily gifts. We think we dare not be satisfied with the small measure of spiritual knowledge, experience, and love that has been given to us...We pray for the big things and forget to give thanks for the ordinary, small (and yet really not small) gifts. How can God entrust great things to one who will not thankfully receive from Him the little things?"
