God wants to see prayers that are filled with genuine praise and thanksgiving for what He has done in the past. He wants our hearts to be filled with awe and gratitude for His blessings. He wants us to set up memorials in our hearts testifying to the provisions He has given us.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's taxable sales and purchases have increased for the first time in two years. State tax data shows that from April to June nearly $4.7 billion in taxable sales and purchases were made. That's a nearly 7 percent increase from the same period last year.
 
     Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger tells The Bismarck Tribune that a "new normal" is emerging that's comparable to pre-oil boom levels. He says the state is seeing rig counts go up with a moderate increase in oil production.
 
     Eight of the 15 major sectors recorded gains when compared to the second quarter a year ago, including the mining and oil extraction sector, which saw an increase of nearly 69 percent.
 
     Oil field counties Williams and McKenzie also saw gains with percentage increases of nearly 32 and 28.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Sen. John Hoeven says he is "supportive" of new legislation that would undo the Obama health law.
 
     President Donald Trump and Republican Senate leaders are trying to rally 50 Republican votes to pass the bill that would replace much of former President Barack Obama's law with block grants to states so they can devise their own health care coverage rules.
 
     The North Dakota Republican says in a statement that the bill, among other things, "appears" to give the state "more funding to help low-income individuals access health insurance."
 
     North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum was among 15 governors who signed a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday supporting the block grant program to states as the "best option on the table for repealing and replacing Obamacare."
