2 Kings 15:32-16:20; Jeremiah 50:21-46; Titus 2:9-:15
Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in
the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Ephesians 5:20
As an Englishman I have always admired the North American
practice of holding a day of thanksgiving in the autumn. We have
so much to be grateful for and it all stems from the one source—
our beloved Lord Jesus who gave His all. Never ask the Father for
anything until you have given thanks for past blessings.
Now thank we all our God,
With hearts and hands and voices,
Who wondrous things has done,
In Whom the world rejoices.
