    In this category of "Praise Reports" (along with the category of the Prayer Wall) one of the verses that we could keep in mind is Psalm 109:27, "That they may know that this is thy hand; that thou, LORD, hast done it." I often think of how we pray for people before they go into a difficult surgery, and then when it goes so very well, people sometimes fail to recognize God in this, or to give Him thanks. We sometimes do a lot of praying, and little thanking afterwards.
    If we did as much "thanking in advance" for what God was going to do, as we do petitioning Him for things, I think we might even see greater answers to our prayers, when we thank Him both before and after He answers.
