How many times is thanks in the Bible?
The word thanks and its variations are used several times throughout the Bible. The number of time this word is found in the Bible is forty times.
In the King James version The phrase give thanks to the Lord is mentioned 2 times 1 Chronicles * 16:41 And with them Heman and Jeduthun, and the rest that were chosen, who were expressed by name, to give thanks to the Lord, because his mercy endureth forever Psalms * 136:30 O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy endureth forever.
The word 'prayer' occurs 131 times in the KJV Bible; and the word 'pray' occurs 511 times. So I reckon the importance of prayer would be stressed many times; yet no more than these two key verses in 1 Thessalonians 5 17. "Pray without ceasing. 18. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus"
