A Psalm for Thanksgiving. Psalm 100: 1-5
1 Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before Him with joyful singing.
3 Know that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
4 Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.
5 For the Lord is good; His loving kindness is everlasting And His faithfulness to all generations.
This Thanksgiving, take the time to pray. Pray with a grateful heart. Pray to offer praise to God for life and for loved ones and our church home called Emory. Pray for God to lead you in the path of God’s choosing.
Pray to help people who are hurting. Pray so that the prayers are not words only, but turned into action.
God provides us with true blessings in abundance. We have joy and laughter; we have courage in the face of fear, hope where there is doubt, comfort when we have tears and sadness. God is with us in all things.
Pray for our youth that this House of Worship we call Emory will be a sanctuary for them to grow in Christ and have fun just being kids.
Pray for our church and community as we seek to strengthen and grow in Christ. Pray for our church leaders who work to make ministry meaningful and for those who will heed the call of God to become the future leaders of Emory. Pray for all the people who serve and for this congregation who give with joyful hearts the financial resources for ministry to take place. Pray for our church as we continue to make disciples of Jesus Christ.
Give thanks to the Lord always with a grateful heart. I am so thankful for you and our church. I am thankful for all that God is doing among us as we pray for the power of the Holy Spirit to lead us into the future.
