Thankfulness, A Critical Aspect of Our Intercession

Thankfulness is such a critical aspect of our intercession and an expression of our reliance on our Almighty God.  A thankful heart releases us from the constant barrage of negative news and the depressing reality that life brings. 

Psalm 100:4 says, “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name.” This is to be our beginning posture.  We must begin our intercession by thanking God for all that He does for us, and then moving into praising Him for the character trait that propels Him to act this way. 

As you go about this season of  Thanksgiving, I encourage you to challenge all those around you to move beyond the negativity of the day, enter into thanksgiving for God’s provision, and move into praise for His character.

 —David Kubal, President and CEO of Intercessors for America

Psalm 95:1-6 – O Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, And a great King above all gods, In whose hand are the depths of the earth; The peaks of the mountains are His also. The sea is His, for it was He who made it; And His hands formed the dry land. Come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker.

I agree that thankfullness should be our beginning posture in prayer, but even before that confession and admitting that we are drowning in sin reaching up to a Holy God.
