What is a
Thanksgiving Bowl? 

My Thanksgiving BowlLittle by little, I found that the intentions that were being granted needed to be taken out of My Prayer Bowl and put in a Thanksgiving Bowl.

This is the bowl that the "Miracles of Heaven" go into. I Thessalonians 5:18 "Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."

Give thanks to God who gave the victory. And remember, there are times when God sees things differently than you. When you know that there is nothing more you or God can do, visably that is, you put the intention in the Thanksgiving Bowl anyway as an acknowledgement that He has seen and He has heard. NO EFFORT EVER GOES IN VAIN!

I found myself putting many intentions in the Thanksgiving Bowl and I started burning them at the Full Moon and the New Moon. The Full Moon symbolizes the coming together of all the efforts that have been made from the New Moon to the Full Moon. The New Moon symbolizes "new beginnings," and what a fitting time for Thanksgiving intentions to be burnt.

I watch as the fire consumes the intentions, turning them into smoke-trails ascending to Heaven. I thank God for the granted petitions and for the honor he has given me by allowing me to bring them to Him.

After the intentions are ashes, I spread them across the ground in front of my Sacret Heart statue of Jesus that resides in the my yard. It is my way of saying thank you.

Of course, when it comes to your very own practice with your Prayer Bowl and your Thanksgiving Bowl, you can do whatever makes you feel right and good. Nothing is set in cement. God loves creativity!
