    Host: What is thankfulness?

    Rev. Joseph McCloskey: That my heart would finally burst from joy is the ultimate of thankfulness in prayer and when you ask what is thankfulness in prayer? Thankfulness is all the ways that I am grateful to people for being themselves, being my friend. But in prayer, it's accepting the friendship of Christ and through him accepting his father's love for us. I remember hearing about a plan, and Kennedy sent years ago, I had never known what play it was from where God the father and the holy spirit were trying to tell Christ not to come because no one would appreciate it and Christ did know it's rather the way around. If I don't come, they will never appreciate how much you love them, no greater love. Has anyone tend to give their life for the sake of the neighbor. John 15 goes on and says, "If the father has loved me, I have loved you. Live in my love. No greater love have anyone as John 15, 13. No greater love have anyone and to give their life for the sake of their neighbor.
