Do you ever know what you want to pray for, but you just can’t find the right words? This happens to me all the time! I don’t even know how to explain it exactly, I feel it in my heart, but I can’t form a cohesive thought to express it. Usually if I am at home and this happens, I sit down and ask God to help me find what I need, and flip open my bible. A lot of the time this happens when I just want to thank God. Not necessarily for a specific moment or thing, but I am thinking about how thankful I am to be here, for everything he has blessed my family with. I feel the thankfulness in my heart, but I don’t know how to tell Him how appreciative I am of all he has done for us. And with Thanksgiving being tomorrow, and the my newsfeed being filled with what everyone is thankful for this holiday season, it has definitely been on my mind constantly. So I found 7 verses to help start things off.
