Epaphras Struggles with Thanksgiving

Epaphras, Thanking God for EverythingIn The Pray-ers, on page 97, Epaphras

“. . . recalled his challenging learning experience with Paul three years earlier, about being thankful. . .”

As you read this short post, it came about from the need to check our motivation in our current politically charged world. And yet, as I was praying through this issue, I began to realize that the issues we face here, and that we truly desire to handle with prayer, require us to consider SO MUCH MORE, namely, we MUST look at how being thankful FOR everything, not just IN everything is a paramount prayer principle.

I so enjoy these character’s and the way they model prayer for us.

Alexander Rich on page 148 deals with this issue as he prays:Alexander Rich, Itinerant Preacher

“Your Word also says that I am to be thankful regarding everything.[1] So I thank You, Lord, for this heaviness on my heart. I don’t know why it is there, but I trust You to unfold for me what I can give thanks for.”
