The Attitude of Gratitude Part 2

December 13, 2007
Maintaining an attitude of thanksgiving in our lives shows we truly believe that God is good. It also shows that our lives are in balance—that our communication with the Lord is not all about our wants and our needs.

The news media, and the world in general, doesn't stress good news, the good things that happen. Yet, there is far more good than evil in our lives. As David demonstrates in Psalm 103, our response to God should be thanksgiving for all He has done.

Praying in Jesus' name is more than just tacking on some words at the end of our prayers. Using Jesus' name in prayer is to appropriate his authority—and it should mean we are living in conformity with the will of God. The important question is: Are we?

In John 14:13, Jesus promised that God would do whatever we ask in Jesus' name. "Whatever" means that no concern is too small for His notice, and we are allowed unlimited access to Him, as it says in Hebrews. Yet, there are boundaries to that promise.

Host Peter Benson connects with Skip Heitzig at the Franklin Graham Crusade in Hong Kong. They talk about Skip's involvement in the crusades, and the excitement of sharing Christ throughout the world. Back in the studio, they look back at the ministry of Calvary Chapel of Albuquerque in 2007, and ahead to the new challenges of 2008.

Why would God refuse to answer our prayers? We ourselves can put up barriers to receiving answers. One such barrier is unforgiveness—harboring a grudge against someone. Another is selfishness, which the book of James calls "asking amiss."

They say that prayer changes things. But there are times when prayer just doesn't work, when heaven is silent. God looks upon prayer as a matter of the heart, and He has said that he will not hear our prayers when we have unconfessed sin in our lives.
December 5, 2007
God established prayer as an avenue of communication with Him, so that we can share in what He wants to do. The purpose of prayer is not to get our will done, but to get God's will done on earth—and in the process, to give us the peace that passes understanding.

We tend to treat prayer like an emergency parachute—we pray when we come to the end of our self-sufficiency, when we experience catastrophe. Yet, God intends prayer as a way we can be in constant communion with Him—as Jesus Himself demonstrated every day.

Mary, the sister of Lazarus, anointed Jesus with a costly oil—worth a year's wages—as an act of worshipping Him. Though Judas criticized this, Jesus defended her, and He praised her. Our own worship should always be lavish and enthusiastic.
November 30, 2007
The parable of the servants in Matthew 24 should make us think: How would I feel if Jesus walked in on me right now? You can be confident or you can be ashamed; you can be rewarded, or you can be cast out.
