Each and every one of us has a part to play in God’s orchestra of prayer. What is your special sound? What instrument do you play? The Holy Spirit directs the movements of this divine symphony according to the score of God’s Word.

Prayers of thanksgiving are like the first movement in a symphony. They open the way to a concert of worship and intercession. The psalmist declares, “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving” (Ps. 100:4), and that is what we do. That is what happened for the grateful leper in Luke 17:11-19.
