I've dedicated a lot of thought towards this question. When we acknowledge God in everything as the source, we build momentum of appriciation, and faith.
These are two of the foundation pillars of answered prayer. The third pillar is the prayer itself. Now I've noticed how it tells us in the Bible to acknowledge God in all things, and saying grace is a form of acknowledgement. I had thought why does God need acknowledgment, adoration and praise? But as I pondered this thought I've reached a conclusion that all that we do for God is really for ourselves. Our acknowledgement of God with appriciation builds our faith and draws us closer to God. Faith grows by execution of faith, just as muscles grow from exercise. To have those muscles grow, we must believe that they can grow from use to even attempt to exercise to make the muscle grow. So faith and action go together, but that is not enough; we must appricate the results to want to continue to do so. This can be for the self results or others results just as long as it motivates you to continue. So now we have action (Prayer) expectancy (faith) appriciation (this builds the desire to return to doing more).
So my question for this is that in order to experience the kingdom life of blessings need we to exercise our prayer with faith, appriciation and acknowledgement of God in all things? Would this be making a momentum of blessings answered, to lead us into the kingdom mindset of a blessed life?
Please express your thought in regard to this question.
first:Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.'
The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these."
if you would be perfect you could do both of these to perfection. the fact is that no one is perfect in this world. but it is not a excuse to stop you from trying.
both of them require that you know your self. since very fee people know them self it require self inquiry, reflection, meditation. eventually one start to know himself and do some inner work to perfect himself.
for that question that you ask:I had thought why does God need acknowledgment, adoration and praise? why not give him some he made all of creation. does he need it or seek it? or is it something that you should acknowledge that he is far greater then you and ask nothing for all he did, does and will do. like a good father he gave you everything that you need like the tale of the prodigal son. it would be better for you to have a good though about him, then having none or bad ones. but this you should know thyself.
