The two best times for a Christian to be thankful are day time and night time. Or, to put it another way, every time and all the time. One of the quickest ways to lose sight of God’s glory and to fall prey to a darkened heart is to stop giving thanks to God.

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

Romans 1:21

Just about the only thing easier than figuring out when to give thanks to God, is figuring out for what to give God thanks. God is perfection personified. He always does what is right, and what He does is always good.

Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Ephesians 5:20

Give thanks to God at all times for all things.
