Rejoice, Pray and Give Thanks

God our Father’s will for us is that we partake in joy everlasting, pray to Him always and praise Him in thanksgiving. By doing these things, we are honoring Him and giving him glory through His Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

(1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)

We ought to rejoice always, praising God with our hands and with our hearts. By words and by deeds, we give glory to Him who created and molded us into His image. By doing so, great joy will never depart from our house, and God will be with us forever.

Let us pray without relent, for as we talk to God, He will reveal Himself to us. Our prayers are as sweet incense rising to His altar. He takes pleasure in every word we say. Continually offer sacrifices of prayer to the Lord our God.

Let us give thanks to God for all that He has done for us. He has blessed us with the gift of life everlasting. He has shown us great love by giving His Son Jesus on the cross so that we might live. Remember always to rejoice, pray and give thanks.
