The Apostle Paul gives us a great encouragement about giving thanks for each new month in our life:
“For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, 5 because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer” ( 1 Timothy 4.4-5, NIV).
God’s goodness is constant and with each new month that we live here, we can give thanks to God for all that he will show us and do through us. May these prayers each month become a wonderful habit in your life. Keep on praying!
