Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 1Th 5:16-18. God has given us so much through His son Jesus that we can be thankful for. He has given us the power of the Holy Spirit and the authority of Jesus to empower our prayer life so that when we pray, heaven responds. When we live a life of constant prayer and retain an attitude of thankfullness knowing that God is a prayer answering God, we can keep our joy in all situations. When we keep praying, we keep our focus on God and His greatness and not our own ability or our circumstances. When we pray with a thankful heart, even before we see the outcome of our prayers, we are moving in faith that pleases God. Thank God today that He is a prayer answering God, who has given us every spiritual authority in Jesus to overcome all situations and to live a victorious life.
