For many of us, Thanksgiving is a one-day event when we gather with friends and family to share a bountiful meal. Rather, we should open our hearts to be thankful year-round!
When we give praise and thanksgiving to God and share it with those around us, we deepen our joy. As you count your blessings, you position yourself to be able to recall God’s goodness. One of the best ways to give our thanks is through prayer.
