Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
Philippians 4:6 (NASB)
Thanksgiving – How many times have we gone before God, kneeled down, and began asking for things? This happens to me all the time. Immediately I petition those around me to join me in asking the Lord to forgive my sins. Before this, I might thank Him for His mercy, but it’s a quick jump into my petition.
