The Key that Unlocks God's Gates

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands...
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,
and into his courts with praise.
- Psalm 100:1,4
Gates are barriers preventing passage.

There are times when prayer is not comforting, worship falls flat, and God seems nowhere to be found - liked a locked gate, even for the believer.
"The key that unlocks the gates of heaven is a thankful heart"1
In those times of little feeling and difficult progress begin with thanking God specifically for the wonderful things he has already done AND for the specific things you expect him to do.

Giving thanks opens the gates and lets God's graces flow.
