What are you thankful for? Thanksgiving Day is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on this.

Get prayer updates from IFA.


Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus (1 Thessalonians 5:16–18 NIV).

There are many things I’m thankful for, IFA being at the top of my list.

If you are reading this, you, too, have been blessed by IFA. The members of this ministry are making an eternal impact in our world today. I am thankful to be a part of what they are sowing daily.

The articles are timely and relevant. IFA gathers seasoned intercessors to pray over urgent needs weekly. Moreover, they supply resources to assist prayer warriors in their call to pray. And this is only a small part of what they do.

Through IFA, I become enlightened about many important and sometimes hidden things that are happening worldwide. At a time when so many people are focused on building their own platforms, IFA is busy sowing into the nation and its people.

Leviticus 7 talks about a thank offering. The thank offering, a sacrifice of thanksgiving, was intended to be voluntary. This is also termed the “thanksgiving offering” (see Leviticus 7:12). One meaning of the Hebrew word for thanksgiving is praise.

First, a thanksgiving offering was voluntary. We don’t have to be thankful; it is our choice.

Second, a thanksgiving offering is received by God as praise. And I can think of no better way to praise God than to have a heart of thanksgiving and to give a thank offering to those who have been a blessing to you.

Perhaps you, like me, have had your eyes opened to some prayer need through IFA. Maybe you’ve read an article that has encouraged you. Or perhaps one of IFA’s awesome prayer guides has caused your prayer life to become supercharged. Perhaps you’ve seen change within your city or state because of the intercessors of IFA. If so, pray about being a blessing to them today.

The Bible teaches us that we are to give into the places where we receive spiritual food (see Galatians 6:6).

It’s easy to see the perpetual harvest that comes from those seeds sown by IFA daily. Changes in our government, hidden evils exposed, and prayers answered. We are seeing harvest! Personally, I want to be a part of this group that is making a difference in our world. Don’t you?

As 2023 wraps up, remember the things you are thankful for. Is IFA one of those? If so, consider giving your best thank offering to IFA, an entity that is undoubtedly impacting our family, nation, and world.

I am part of IFA Washington and am blessed each time we get together on a prayer call. This tiny group of Prayer Warriors truly stand for God’s truth, as per scripture, praying for the various needs in our state and nation. We have recently included Israel and the hostages in our prayers.

Lord, thank You for saving me. Thanks for family, friends, your gracious provision, Your love and mercy whose depths are beyond our comprehension but without which we could not survive. Thank you that we can directly approach your throne of grace with our petitions and our thanksgiving. Thank You that by You, we have hope, are eternally secure and we look forward to that great and glorious day of the rapture. Thank you for IFA, Behold Israel, and other fellow believers. In Jesus’ name, amen.

I am grateful to be alive, and to be able to serve the Lord with the gift of life that He has given to me. I am grateful for ALL of the ministries that the Lord has allowed us to create here on earth to serve Him. Lord, by the power of Holy Spirit, please cause each and every ministry that brings glory to You to prosper. May anything made by man that does not bring glory and honor to You either be brought into alignment with Your will, or not be allowed to function. Thank You, Jesus.

Amen! Thank you to all who work so hard to keep us up to date on specific things we need to be praying about. May God continue to lead you to the important topics of the day, even revealing deep and hidden things through you, so they can be brought into the light.
You are doing an amazing job fulfilling a vital role for the body of Christ. May God establish the work of your hands and be the lifter of your head to help you persevere and not grow weary.
