How do you thank God when he answer’s a prayer? I was praying the other day that God would keep us safe in this weather coming into Arkansas from Oklahoma. There was a tornado on the ground from Idabel, Oklahoma. The local TV channel had two tornado warnings close to Dequeen, Arkansas, 38 miles away from us, apparently it didn’t turn out to be too serious, but it got my attention.
How do you thank God, when he answers your prayers? I thanked God for keeping us safe. But I wonder if we pray more asking for something than thanking God when he does deliver.
The best thing we can do is make sure we do pray and thank him for answering our prayers and to live a pleasing life towards God. We’re all sinners, it’s hard to live a pleasing life to God, without mistakes, or judgements in error, but he must try our best and ask for forgiveness when we do sin.
We also can make sure we are spreading the good news about Jesus, taking opportunities to tell people about Jesus and about being a Christian. To put our faith in Jesus, that he will take care of us, that he paid the ultimate sacrifice for our sins, so that we can be forgiven for our sins and are saved by God’s grace, that we will spend everlasting life in Heaven with him.
Don’t forget to shine our light and sow the seed with unbelievers and let God convict their hearts and be patient. It may take a long time for their hearts to become convicted, but we need to have faith that it will happen. God bless and thank God.
