We at Anchored In
like to welcome you to our 2005 Thanksgiving Page. This
year thus far has been trying to our great nation. Many lives have been
lost to the war on terrorism, there
appears to be political rhetoric on capital
hill and many people are
losing their patience with the ongoing war.
I will not attempt to go into
or about the moral value of any war! As we
reflect back on the year
the question is simple. HAVE WE THANKED GOD
HE BLESSED US WITH ? Many times we often
take for granted
the blessings from God. We often receive
praise reports of how God
has blessed them and their families with the
healing of illness or disease.
Praise reports of how a family that was facing a
crisis, the loss of a job
or illness and how God answered the prayers.
A loved one accepted
Jesus Christ as their
personal Savior and the family circle will not be
testimonies are proof that our God is an awesome
answer prayers! God answers prayers in His
time, not ours.
As we gather with our families at this time of the
year let us remember
to truly thank God for His blessings.
say what blessings?
If you read this below from an author known only
to God, you will
find that one of these will apply to you. The last one is the
most important of all! We hope to see you in church ! !
Have a Blessed and Joyous Thanksgiving.
Father as we come to you humble
and on bended knees
forgive us of our sins and sinful
nature. Heavenly Father
watch over our Armed Forces where ever
they are. We
know that many families have suffered
this year with the
loss of a loved one. We ask that
You comfort these
families in a way that only You
can. Father be with our
missionaries where ever they may
be. The field within
the United States are ripe for
harvest, but the workers
are few. Let us be ever mindful
to spread the gospel of
Jesus Christ. Father I ask
that You continue to bless our
great nation and that we remember that
our nation was
founded by men who believed in
God. Father let us
remember to help those less fortunate
not only this
joyous time of the year, but throughout
Father I ask that You place upon all
our hearts to bring
our nation together as one.
Father I thank You for all
the blessings that you have given us
and I thank You for
the greatest sacrifice of all and that
was for Your Son
Jesus Christ. We ask all of
these petitions in Jesus
holy name, Amen
As you listen to Be Grateful by
Charlie Pride, there is a lot of truth
that is applicable to all of us.
