Lamentations 2:1-9, 14-17; Psalm 74;
2 Corinthians 1:23-2:11; Mark 12:1-11

Thank God for everything. Thank God for all the bad things that have happened to you. Thank God for your hopeless situations. And thank God for every single thing in your life, whether you think it is good or bad.

We know from God’s word that he is the truth. He is the light! In him there is no darkness at all. Although we are faithless, God remains faithful. Although we often turn from God, he never turns from us.

Understand that praying to God is not asking him for something. For the word of God tells us that God has already given us all good things according to his will – that whatever you ask for according to the will of God, it shall be yours. We ask God in our hearts. For God knows the thoughts and desires of every man and woman.

Our lips and mouths were made to praise God! Our vocal cords were made to worship God and his holy name. We don’t need to keep asking God for the same things over and over. All we need to do is thank him for them. God has promised his children that he will answer our prayers. Just believe in him. Thank him, worship him, and praise him night and day. Praise God! Praise God! Praise God! Praise God! Praise God! Praise God!
