We pray each day, focused and with great fervor, reminding the Lord of our need.
And God answers.
- The problem is solved.
- The solution makes sense.
- The worry is gone.
Do we toss up a casual, "thanks, Lord," and go about our merry way,
Forgetting all about the miracle of answered prayer?
Jesus took care of a situation for me recently.
Yes, He answered.
I am determined to go back again and again and thank Him.
Placing the same effort and commitment as the initial prayer - in my giving of thanks.
I imagine God is pleased with us when we respond in this manner.
Let us be a thankful people, rejoicing in our great God!
Has the Lord answered a special prayer for you this week?
How often how you thanked Him for it?
Have you offered up thanks with the same fervency of your initial request?
