A Daily Thanksgiving Prayer From The Bible
A daily thanksgiving prayer from the Bible has a healing power all its own. That is what David from Cape Town, South Africa found out recently:
“On 22nd Sept, I was hospitalized after my blood pressure went chronically elevated. On receiving your prayer bullets on thanksgiving (lying on the sickbed), I sensed in the spirit that 1Tim 1:12 (Prayer point 22) was for me to apply and here is how I said it;
“I give thanks to Christ Jesus my Lord and Saviour who has strengthened and healed me, having considered me faithful, appointing me to his service. “ I sensed God touch me during that time when my blood pressure was having moody swings. Now (6 days) later I am back home heading for full recovery.”

Others have found that thanksgiving prayers from the Bible can even bring blessings into their lives in unexpected ways. Mutsa tells of his job being restored after he leant the principles of thanksgiving prayers.
“After receiving my thanksgiving prayers I immediately started on them and chose method number 1 fasting till 3pm for 3 days. Praise be to God after a week I was called back to my place of work where we had been laid off.

The scripture says:

in Christ Jesus concerning you. – 1 Thes. 5:18
Did you notice the words “in every thing”?
That’s the keyword here.
In a dark and stormy night …
… I found that showing gratitude and giving thanks, apart from pleasing the LORD who really is the Giver of all good things…
… also served as a giant “excuse” for Him to shower even more blessings upon me and my loved ones!
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no fickleness, neither shadow of turning. – James 1:17
That’s when I embarked on a “Hero’s Journey” to uncover the real secret behind the principle of giving thanks.

What I found I converted into prayer “bullets” … which I “fire” towards heaven at the midnight hour.
Now, wait a minute…
If you read your Bible carefully, you’ll notice that’s the exact same thing that King David used to do. Here, I’m not making it up – he actually confessed to doing this:
