[MUSIC PLAYING] Hi, I’m Ty’Ann. I have a prayer tip for you. You know, oftentimes when we pray to the Lord, we come with a laundry list of things– our wants, our desires, our difficulties, our challenges. And sometimes we forget to say thank you. 

Well, Philippians 4:6 says “be careful for nothing, but in everything in prayer, and supplication, and thanksgiving make your requests known to God.” See, there is a power in saying thanks. One, you show appreciation to God. But two, you show an expectation that there is nothing too hard for God. 

So the next time you pray, say, Lord, I thank you. Come on, say it with me. Lord, I think you. Amen. God bless you.
