TOMORROW 25th MAY IS OUR NATIONAL DAY OF THANKSGIVING

Tomorrow we join together as a Nation to celebrate and give thanks to Almighty God for His blessings upon us as a Nation and as His people

The Word declares that we should give thanks in all circumstances.  So, inspite of the challenges we have been through as a nation, and inspite of the uncertainties we face, let us choose to give thanks in the sure knowledge that He has brought us through, and will continue to be our protector and provider through whatever challenges lie ahead.  Our faith is in Him, for He is our strength in the midst of trouble, and our Deliverer from the darkness of this world. 

Let us give thanks for the promise of His word that He will never leave us nor forsake us.  Let us give thanks for the promise that no weapon formed against us can prosper.  Let us give thanks that our hope is not based on earthly things but on things eternal.  Let us acknowledge and rejoice in the truth of His word and the power of His Spirit to guide and save us. 

Therefore let us tomorrow join together as His people across this great nation in making the following declarations to the Lord Himself:

We choose to give You thanks, for who You are, and for all the blessings You have bestowed upon us.  We thank You for life itself, for the richness of the relationships that bind us together as members of Your family, and for the certainty You promise of eternal life to all who receive and acknowledge Your Son Jesus as Lord and Saviour. 

We declare that we will continue to honour You as Lord of our Nation and of our lives. 

We declare that we will, against all opposition and worldly temptation, continue to live according to Your statutes and example. 

We declare that we will continue to share Your love and proclaim the truth of Your teaching to people everywhere. 

Forgive us Lord where we have failed in the past, and renew a right spirit within us that we might truly reflect Your character in all we are and in all that we do.
