Episode 24 is live!
Have you ever thanked God before He heals or blesses you?
Usually we thank God after something good happens. And that’s important. But gratitude before the solution appears is a powerful prayer.
In today’s episode, I share some ideas about why “gratitude in advance” is so important and you can add this powerful tool to your spiritual tool box. You’ll learn about:
- How Jesus thanked God before two very important miracles, feeding the multitude and raising Lazarus from the grave
- The mindset of Jesus that empowered him to thank God in advance
- How we can use this same mindset to be grateful in our prayers
Thanks so much for listening. Please share this with a friend.
