Appreciating God

Appreciating God is effective prayer! Throughout his healing ministry Christ Jesus was grateful to God for His goodness. And his acknowledgment of God's goodness was made active in his healings of sin, disease, and death. Through his true appreciation of God, Jesus exemplified effective prayer. Gratitude is a healing agent.

When his disciples asked Jesus to teach them how they too could pray effectively, he gave them what we call the Lord's Prayer, which begins with deep appreciation of God: "Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name." Matt. 6:9; To hallow God's name, or nature, we first need to know His nature, be sensitive to the value of knowing Him, and be fully aware of His goodness.
