Right before the miracle of Lazarus’s resurrection, Jesus prays. It’s a prayer of thanksgiving. It proclaims what Jesus knows to be true about God and serves as instruction for those present at the event.


Luke 11:41-44 So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.” When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face. Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.”
