(01/31/2000) Sacrifices of thanksgiving
|hello prayer partners,
1. Prayer Note: Giving thanks
[Psalms 107:22] And let them sacrifice the sacrifices
of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.
[John 6:11] And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had
given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the
disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of
the fishes as much as they would.
We covered the sacrifices of praise. In the midst of
our troubles, we praise Him and that is why we call it
sacrifices of praise. The same goes with thanksgiving.
These are also called sacrifices of thanksgiving.
It may not be easy to give thanks when things are not
looking up, but it is when things are not looking up
in the natural, that we are to look up and give
thanks. Try it, when we pray, come before Him and
thank Him first. For everything and for the situation.
This, according to Marilyn Hickey, is the key to
unlocking the supernatural and the key to miracles.
Before the miracle of the five loaves and two fishes,
Jesus took the bread and the fishes and gave thanks.
Want more of this? Read the story of Jonah and how God
released him from the belly of the fish when he
started giving thanks. [Jonah 2:9-10]

Subject: fw. Urgent prayer request

I received this in my e-mail today and thought I would
(cut and paste)& pass
this along..this child and family needs much prayer!
Please pray for Seth. This from a lady in another
online group (Roses of
Sharon) I am part of -
My dear ROS sisters,
I am calling on you all today with a sense of urgency.
Please pray for my sister's son. Actually, he is not
her son but she
is raising him and has had him for the last 5 yrs.
This is very long but please read it!
Seth is 7 yrs. old. He was premature...born when
mother was only 4
1/2 mos. along. He was born without fingernails
and even his skin was not completely formed over his
whole body. His
lungs did not develop enough and of course,
they said he wouldn't live. He did live and has
struggled his whole 7
yrs. of life.
My sister is not saved and she stays away from me
because of my
relationship with God. She called me this morning
to ask for prayer for Seth. Seems Seth has been very
sick and they
have now found out that he has CHF (Congestive
Heart Failure) and COP. She didn't know what COP is
and I don't
either. Something about his lungs are being eaten
away. Also was diagnosed last week as bipolar. This
little boy has
suffered his entire life. He has been on oxygen for
the last year. Kids at school made fun of him for
having to lug his
02 tank to school. Seth wants to die. Please pray for
him. The doctor's give no hope. He is not strong
enough to survive
any surgery. Please pray that my sister can be
ministered to also.
I have a special request for Seth. He can't get out of
the house. He
is so isolated for the last year. Would you dear
ladies please pass this along to everyone you know and
send Seth a
card to let him know others do care about him?
He's only 7 and his favorite song is "Don't Laugh at
Me" because his
illness makes him different and kids havee been
so cruel. He thinks no one loves him and that God
doesn't love him
either. If you would reach out to Seth by sending a
card and brighten what could be his last days on this
earth here is
1044 Resevoir St.
Hamilton, Ohio 45011
Thank you ladies! Please pass this on!
In His Love,
