Vital signs- Saturday, October 28th, 2023


“Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying. And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. And I know that You always hear Me, but because of the people who are standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me.””

‭‭John‬ ‭11‬:‭41‬-‭42‬ ‭NKJV‬‬


Jesus thanked His Father for answered prayer before His prayer was answered. His heart was so in tune with the heart of the Father that He could boldly ask, knowing it was the will of God. In the same way, our Savior calls us to align our hearts with our Heavenly Father’s heart. His plan is for our desires to be His desires, our wants to be His wants, our goals to be His goals, our will to be His will and our prayers to be His prayers. Hence, we can thank Him for answered prayers!

What prayers are yet to be answered but need to be prayed? What is Christ asking you to confidently pray in His name, knowing He will answer in the future? Perhaps it’s a yet to be determined job promotion you can thank God for now. You can praise the Lord today for your wayward child, for whom you have a peace in your heart will eventually come back to their Savior, Jesus. Or you pray with the Spirit’s certainty over an uncertain illness that threatens your joy. Whatever you face, you can face down with faith in your Heavenly Father, who hears your prayer.

We ask in Jesus’ name when we pray for Him to be glorified through answered prayer. When Jesus is lifted up, all men and women are drawn to Him. We ask in Christ’s name when our desire is for our answered prayers to be a benefit for believers to grow in their faith and for unbelievers to come to faith. Oh, the joy of seeing someone come to know Jesus in personal salvation because they saw the love of God transform the life of a loved one - gratitude glorifies God!

Lastly, as we look to the Lord and thank Him for answered prayer, He may call us to be a part of His provision. Jesus told the disciples to pray to the Lord of the harvest for laborers, and as they prayed, He called them to labor for Him. So, what is your role in relation to the future prayers He wants to answer on your behalf? Perhaps you can resource the need or call on a relationship that can provide answers. Be grateful that God has you positioned to be a part of His answered prayers! 


“Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.”

‭‭I John‬ ‭5‬:‭14‬-‭15‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
