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.

If we dissolve all the terms (God and faith for a few), then I generally agree with this and think it true.

One big thing I disagree with, only in the way you described it here; I do not believe prayer is a valid action. Do not pray for your muscles to get bigger. Do not believe they will get bigger- go to the gym first.

How bout this formula; prayer, action, faith, appreciation.

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.

the current stage is that of
light and darkness, with darkness
holding political and
economic power

our task is to learn why
we are here and until all
know that, the 'blessed life'
maybe fleeting

darkness is the absence or lack of light it cannot hold political or economic power. what you are referring to is man that want to be praise for money and power. why we are here we are passer by that are here just for a little while."If those who lead you say to you, 'See, the kingdom is in heaven,' then the birds of heaven will precede you. If they say to you, 'It is in the sea,' then the fish will precede you. But the kingdom is inside of you. And it is outside of you.-

"When you become acquainted with yourselves, then you will be recognized. And you will understand that it is you who are children of the living father. But if you do not become acquainted with yourselves, then you are in poverty, and it is you who are the poverty." if you want a blessed life first clean the inside of the cup and after clean the outside of the cup. so that you may be born of water and spirit. changing stuff only on the outside in a world that is in constant change where noting-

last is a fleeting dream. the blessed life is in the present moment.seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. "Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to.There is light within a man of light, and he lights up the whole world. If he does not shine, he is darkness." "When will the kingdom come?"-

"It will not come by waiting for it. It will not be a matter of saying 'here it is' or 'there it is.' Rather, the kingdom of the father is spread out upon the earth, and men do not see it." therefor do not be of the world, since the world is what each and every one of you in the world make it to be. then find the light in you and build the kingdom first in you and second around you.-

the dust will return to the dust and the light will return to the light and you passer-by where will you choose to go? what door will you enter? will you stay with the dust? or will you return to the light?

to be not of the world yet live in it,
