We ask, “What are we thankful for?”

We should also ask, “Who are we thankful to?”*

Give thanks to the Lord, the one who shaped the mountains, stirs up the winds, and reveals his thoughts to mankind. He turns the light of dawn into darkness and treads on the heights of the earth. The Lord God of Heaven’s Armies is his name (Amos 4:13).”

President Lincoln On Prayer

I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go. My own wisdom, and that of all about me, seemed insufficient . . . One stormy night I tossed on my bed, unable to sleep as I thought of the terrible sufferings of our soldiers and sailors. I spent an hour in agonizing prayer. ~Abraham Lincoln

Wise leaders pray.
