Topic: The Importance of Thanksgiving Prayer 2
John 11:41 “Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.”
What Jesus did before raising Lazarus from the dead is an important lesson for every believer. We may be faced with diverse situations that could spur us to pray ‘violently’ and ‘dangerously’ but we should understand that, that would not always be the solution.
Jesus started with a simple prayer of thanksgiving, the death of one of His own should have overwhelmed Him but He did not forget God is bigger than any of such situations. Be like Jesus, you will overcome!
Talk to God: Father, help me to remember to praise you at all time in Jesus’ name, amen.
