Happy Thanksgiving day to you and yours! When my family gathers today, I’m sure my dad will ask each of us to share something for which we are thankful. One of the things I am always grateful for is parents who taught me to love Jesus and for a mother who is an amazing prayer warrior. Speaking to God daily is so very important for our relationship with Him. Prayer gives us a shield against the enemy. Satan’s darts can’t reach us when we’re surrounded by God’s presence, and we invite His presence through prayer. Whatever else you do today, send up a prayer of thankfulness to your Father in heaven. He’s always there to hear us when we call.
