Praise (A Series on Prayer)

“Prayer is our most formidable weapon, the thing which makes all else we do efficient.” ~E.M. Bounds

By using the word formidable, Bounds is saying that prayer is our most strikingly impressive weapon. However, this weapon also seems to be the one we are least skilled at and most reluctant to use!

In order to praise God well and clearly, we first must know what praise is!

Praise (as defined by Merriam-Webster) is, “To express favorable judgement of, to glorify especially by the attribution of perfections”.

And a google search said that it was to express warm approval or admiration of  someone or something.

1 Chronicles 29:10-11 is a great example of pure praise of God.

Then you must study God. Study the attributes of God. Who is this God that you are praying to?  Praise Him for who he is, what he has done, and what he will do.

Psalm 145:1-2, “I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever. Every day I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever.Have a beautiful sense of His greatness. The delicate creature to the immense magnificent God”.

Praise God for all that he is and all he has done. Our amazing God deserves our worship and praise! Spend some time today praising our God!

Have a beautiful day! ❤

    This was wonderful, Emma! Thank you for writing! 🙂 When you said to “study the attributes of God,” this verse came to my mind: “The Lord, the Lord God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth; who keeps lovingkindness for thousands,who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin…Exodus 34:6-7a (NASB).
