Being filled with Thanksgiving – Prayer

Who do we cry out to when we feel all alone?  When the circumstances and decisions of our lives have closed us in and leave us feeling in prisoned.  Who do we turn to?  Do we follow the ways of this world, and spiral down further into pit of our own despair?  Or are we to turn to the creator instead of the creation?  Prayer is not our last line of defense.  It is not our last resort.  It should be the first thing we do, our proactive approach to this life and way we handle our burdens.  Then we will truly see what it means to praise God and to be filled with thanksgiving towards Him.
