In the last few days I’ve been talking about giving thanks to God, and saying, “Thank you” to everyone who does something for you. Saying “Thank you” isn’t just something that’s just randomly become something we should do, as in the bible there are examples of many saying thank you t each other, and to God.

The example I want t give you today though, is if Jesus saying thank you to God, his Father, for hearing and answering his prayer:

John 11:40-42 (NIV)

Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”

So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.”

Jesus knew it was important to thank God for all he does, so follows Jesus’ example each day, and remember to say, “thank you” to God for hearing and answering our prayers.
