Why should we praise?
We were created to praise God. He created us for His glory, and there is nothing that reflects His glory more than giving Him honor and praise for Who He is!
Praising God is healthy for our spirits and our minds. You can’t praise Him without being thankful.
We all know that thankfulness interrupts anxiety and worry. It ends negative thoughts. When we praise Him for what He’s done in our lives we become overwhelmed with thankfulness, and remembrance, which builds our faith.
If you need help knowing how to praise God, just read this out loud to Him:
“A Song of Praise
It’s so enjoyable to come before you
with uncontainable praises spilling from our hearts!
How we love to sing our praises over and over to you,
to the matchless God, high and exalted over all!
At each and every sunrise we will be thanking you
for your kindness and your love.
As the sun sets and all through the night,
we will keep proclaiming, “You are so faithful!”
No wonder I’m so glad; I can’t keep it in!
Lord, I’m shouting with glee over all you’ve done,
for all you’ve done for me:
what mighty miracles and your power at work—just to name a few!
Depths of purpose and layers of meaning
saturate everything you do.
You, O Lord, are exalted forever
in the highest place of endless glory.
Your anointing has made me strong and mighty.
You’ve empowered my life for triumph
by pouring fresh oil over me.
Yes! Look how you’ve made all your devoted lovers
to flourish like palm trees,
each one growing in victory, standing with strength!
You’ve transplanted them into your heavenly courtyard,
where they are thriving before you,
for in your presence they will still overflow and be anointed.
Even in their old age they will stay fresh,
bearing luscious fruit and abiding faithfully.
Listen to them! With pleasure they still proclaim:
“You’re so good! You’re my beautiful strength!
You’ve never made a mistake with me.”
Psalm 92: 12-15
The Passion Translation
Reading from the Psalms will give you so many words to praise God!
And God said that the author of Psalms, David, was a man after His own heart.
You can’t go wrong!
Love, hugs, and praising together,
