We are so fortunate in Canada to be able to set aside a time for being thankful. A thankful heart is a big deal to God. Thanksgiving with prayer actually protects us from anxiety. Paul says not to be anxious about anything but through prayer with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Then God’s peace will stand guard at our hearts and minds. Our posture of thanksgiving should be at all times whether we are in distress or delight . May we as the people of God be thankful continually for every season of our lives.
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
