“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” Colossians 4:2 NIV 

“God is great, God is good!” We remember the prayer of our childhood and how often it was spoken. But, sometimes we forget to begin our prayers in praise. We neglect to remember that PEACE comes from the power of God’s “good”. 

God IS great! He offers His awesome presence in our lives and longs for us to love Him more…Sometimes; we become consumed by our own agendas. We don't devote ourselves in prayer and we forget who’s in charge of All things. But, when Jesus leads us to the Father, He shows how to welcome a grateful heart of trust. 

When we’ve been prepared to respond to His tugging of our hearts, He will help us appreciate the gifts of His greatness. He will fill us with the goodness of His grace and help us discover why we should be thankful. 

If we begin our prayers in praise, God will fill us with content. He will bless us in the presence of peace. And, He will remind us how very much we are loved. God is great, God is good! He has opened our eyes to another day of life! Isn’t that reason enough to devote ourselves in prayer and be very, very grateful? 

Dear God, Thank you for waking us for another day of opportunity to recognize Your greatness. We will love You with all of our hearts, as we come before Your presence of peace and praise You with our prayers of thanks. And, we will never forget, there is strength in the power of Your endless love! Amen
