Thanksgiving

Colossians 4:2
Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving.

NLT version:
Col 4:2  Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart.
The Message Bible
Col 4:2  Pray diligently. Stay alert, with your eyes wide open in gratitude.

Whatever the version we are to pray with thanksgiving! I've noticed that when I start praying with thanksgiving sometimes I forget all about the all the petitions I have and that thanksgiving TAKES OVER! :-) Not that we should NOT bring our requests to God because we are told that we SHOULD! 
Sometimes we hear prayer presented as an inconvenient obligation or duty and made to feel guilty that we do not pray more! It changes everything when we realize that prayer is not some mandatory obligation but rather an amazing privilege! WE GET TO PRAY! We are allowed access to the throne room of heaven! We get to converse with The One Person in the universe who is able to move on our behalf like no one else can or will! That should put a spring in our step and make us walk with our head held high!  

Happy Thanksgiving!
