Devote with Thanksgiving

Col 4:2 Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.


That’s a big command.  It is hard to devote ourselves to prayer.  We have so many distractions.  Our schedules are so busy and tend to crowd out our quiet time with our God.  We need to be watchful.  We need to be on guard of our schedule.  We need to make sure we spend time in prayer and Bible study.  And through this all we need to be thankful.  How often do we thank God during our day?  Do we thank Him in the morning for our night’s sleep and for waking up in the morning?  Do we thank Him for the roofs over our heads?  Absolutely everything that we have and do is because of His love and mercy toward us.  Let us learn to be quicker in our thanksgiving to God and slower in our asking Him for things.
