Praying with a Thankful Heart



If you're finding it difficult to have an attitude of gratitude, then think of Daniel in the lion's den!

If I were facing a pit of hungry lions, I wonder how thankful I would be. 

Recently I was reading about Daniel in the Bible.  Daniel loved God and lived to serve Him.  However, one day a decree was passed by the King that said anyone caught praying to God would be thrown into a den of lions, but Daniel continued to pray.  What did he pray?  He gave thanks to God as he had done before. 

Well, praying with a thankful heart proved powerfully effective.  When Daniel was thrown into the lion’s den, God shut the animals’ mouths and Daniel’s life was spared!  I wonder if my life were at stake, if the first thing I’d do would be to say a prayer of thanks.  Wow, what a challenge to have an attitude of gratitude every day.
