Thought From The Word

 

A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD

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.”

CALMLY THINK OF THIS

How often do we thank the Father for answering our prayers?  Jesus set the example–If He did it so should we. Many times, we receive a request about a person being seriously ill.  So many prayers go up on their behalf. Then lo and behold we hear that they are up going.  Then instead of hearing how God answered prayer–we hear someone(Christian) say “Oh they must not have been to as ill we were led to believe”.  We note here Jesus called God Father. He is our heavenly Father and we must respect Him as such. Then Jesus thanks the Father for granting His request.  Let’s thank God for answering our prayers.

Let’s keep your relationship with the Father fresh and growing.
