OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 12 AUGUST 2021 MESSAGE
“Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” “Philippians 4:6”
Beyond being a type of prayer, thanksgiving is a type of giving that brings about multiplication. Its an act of faith.
Anytime you refuse to thank God, you are indirectly saying He doesn’t exist and thereby accusing Him of non-performance.
Whenever you thank God, you are acknowledging that He is alive and playing His role in your life.
In today’s Bible reading, the provision for the multitude remained limited until Jesus applied the power of thanksgiving.
As soon as thanksgiving was brought into that situation, the provision was multiplied in excess.
If you have very little when so much is required, don’t be afraid.
Through thanksgiving, you could multiply what you have to meet your need.

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 12 AUGUST 2021 HYMN
THERE SHALL BE SHOWERS OF BLESSING
1. There shall be showers of blessing:
This is the promise of love;
There shall be season refreshing,
Sent from the Saviour above.
Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need;
Mercy drops round us are falling,
But for the showers we plead.
2. There shall be showers of blessing:
Precious reviving again;
Over the hills and the valleys,
Sound of abundance of rain.
3. There shall be showers of blessing;
Send them upon us, Oh Lord!
Grant to us now a refreshing;
Come and now honour Thy Word.
4. There shall be showers of blessing;
Oh, that today they might fall,
Now, as to God, we’re confessing,
Now as on Jesus we call!
5. There shall be showers of blessing,
If we but trust and obey;
There shall be seasons refreshing,
If we let God have His way.
