THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JOHN - Chapter 11 - Verse 41

Verse 41. Lifted up his eyes. In an attitude of prayer. See Lu 18:13; Mt 14:19.

I thank thee that thou hast heard me. It is possible that John has recorded only the sum or substance of the prayer on this occasion. The thanks which Jesus renders here are evidently in view of the fact that power had been committed to him to raise up Lazarus. On account of the people, and the signal proof which would be furnished of the truth of his mission, he expressed his thanks to God. In all his doings he recognized his union to the Father, and his dependence on him as Mediator.

{b} "Father" Joh 12:28-30
