Summer of Prayer Series
Do you think of praise as an option? Is it like a p.s. that you might tack on at the end of a prayer? Is praise something you do when things are going your way?
Praise is an important part of prayer and a joyful life.
“There should be a parallel between our supplications and our thanksgivings. We ought not to leap in prayer, and limp in praise.
– Charles Spurgeon
Praise is worship
Praise is not about your circumstances but about Who you are praising. God is always worthy of praise no matter what is happening or not happening in your life or mine.
A praise-filled day is like the perfect outfit. It is always the right fit and goes with everything.
So, anytime is praise time!
Praise is a key to constant prayer.
God is with us at all times. We live in His continual presence.
He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being, – Acts 17:27-28
We need to grab onto this powerful reality and apply it to our lives each day. Living in this awareness will cause praise to happen easily and often.
Praise can become a lifestyle.
Sing out your praises to our God, our King. Yes, sing your highest praises to our King, the King of all the earth. Sing thoughtful praises! Psalm 47:7 (TLB)
I will praise the Lord no matter what happens. I will constantly speak of his glories and grace. Psalm 34:1 (TLB
