2 Chronicles 20:
God had promised Jehoshaphat a victory and he believed Him. He believed Him completely, with absolutely no reservations. How can we tell? Because he instructed the people to sing praises and thanks to God - before the victory.
Do I have that faith? Do I believe that much? Do I praise and thank God before the victory?
We're often not told in advance that God is going to answer our prayer with a "yes". But no matter if the answer is "yes" or "no" or "wait" we know that God is good, and we know that God is sovereign, so we can praise Him and give thanks to Him before the battle, trusting that God's best will be accomplished for His glory.
