   “他们就把石头挪开。耶稣举目说,父啊,我感谢你,因为你已经听我。”(约11章41节)
  这真是一个奇怪的,反常的秩序:拉撒路还在坟墓里,可是感谢已经先有了。我总以为感谢的时候,应当在大功告成,拉撒路复活以后;但是我们的主耶稣却为着那尚未成就的事情感谢!感谢发生在恩典到临之前,深信恩典已经在半途了。
  十字军出发启行的时候,谁肯先唱胜利的凯歌呢?祷告的答应尚未到来之前,谁肯先唱感恩的诗歌呢?但是我们的主所留给我们的榜样,并不是奇怪的,勉强的,没有理由的。赞美在行神迹的工作上实在是非常重要的。神迹由于灵力,灵力的大小是和信心成比例的。——乔怀德
  祷告的时候,没有一件东西比赞美更能得到神的喜悦,也没有一件东西比赞美更能祝福祷告的人。有一次我在中国藉着得到一个很大的祝福:我从家乡接到很多不快乐的消息,焦虑密布了我的全心。我祷告,焦虑并不轻减,我竭力忍住,事实上却焦虑□更厉害。正在那时候我出发到一处内地去,看见在一家传道人住宅的墙上写着“要感谢”三个字,我就立即开口感谢,不一会,我的焦虑全都消散了,一点也没有留下。——富勒斯
      "And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou heart me." (John 11:41.)
      THIS is a very strange and unusual order. Lazarus is still in the grave, and the thanksgiving precedes the miracle of resurrection. I thought that the thanksgiving would have risen when the great deed had been wrought, and Lazarus was restored to life again. But Jesus gives thanks for what He is about to receive. The gratitude breaks forth before the bounty has arrived, in the assurance that it is certainly on the way. The song of victory is sung before the battle has been fought. It is the sower who is singing the song of the harvest home. It is thanksgiving before the miracle!
      Who thinks of announcing a victory-psalm when the crusaders are just starting out for the field? Where can we hear the grateful song for the answer which has not yet been received? And after all, there is nothing strange or forced, or unreasonable in the Master's order. Praise is really the most vital perparatory ministry to the working of the miracles. Miracles are wrought by spiritual power. Spiritual power is always proportioned to our faith. --- Dr. Jowett.
PRAISE CHANGES THINGS
      Nothing so pleases God in connection with our prayer as our praise, and nothing so blesses the man who prays as the praise which he offers. I got a great blessing once in China in this connection. I had received bad and sad news from home, and deep shadows had covered my soul. I prayed, but the darkness did not vanish. I summoned myself to endure, but the darkness only deepened. Just then I went to an inland station and saw on the wall of the mission home these words: "Try Thanksgiving." I did, and in a moment every shadow was gone, not to return. Yes, the Psalmist was right, "It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord."
--- Rev. Henry W. Frost.
