Thoughts for Thanksgiving

Nov 14, 2017

"There should be a parallel between our supplications and our thanksgivings. We ought not to leap in prayer, and limp in praise" -- Charles Spurgeon


"Let us thank God heartily as often as we pray that we have His Spirit in us to teach us to pray. Thanksgiving will draw our hearts out to God and keep us engaged with Him; it will take our attention from ourselves and give the Spirit room in our hearts" -- Andrew Murray


"We would worry less if we praised more. Thanksgiving is the enemy of discontent and dissatisfaction" -- Harry Ironside


"A sensible thanksgiving for mercies received is a mighty prayer in the Spirit of God. It prevails with Him unspeakably" -- John Bunyan


"Foolish talking and jesting are not the ways in which Christian cheerfulness should express itself, but rather "giving of thanks" (Eph. 5:4). Religion is the source of joy and gladness, but its joy is expressed in a religious way, in thanksgiving and praise" -- Charles Hodge


"The Christian life is an unending festival. And the festival we keep, now that our Passover Lamb has been sacrificed for us, is a joyful celebration of his sacrifice, together with a spiritual feasting upon it" -- John Stott
