It is great to sing songs of praise to God and to read praise scriptures. Prayer and praise are two powerful weapons used by believers. When you pray, pray from a ‘victory stance’ as though you have already received your answer. Satan, our enemy, does not want us to know about prayer and worship. He will try everything and anything to separate us from God. We cannot and must not forget how great God is and what He has done for us. He is our kind, loving, compassionate and merciful Father. He is worthy of all our praise. Don’t forget to offer praise and thanksgiving to him daily. Praise and thanksgiving are great spiritual languages that can be used to enter into the presence of God. “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and enter into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless His name,” Psalm 100:4. Here are a few praise scriptures recorded in the Bible: Psalms 138, 8, l9, 34, 100, 103, 145, 146, 148 and 150. Be thankful not just for material things, but be thankful most of all for spiritual things like the presence of Almighty God and for His presence within us. Be thankful for Gods’ word and be thankful for Jesus.
A few of my favorite praise songs to sing to the Lord include: ‘Standing On The Promises Of God.’ This song was written by Russell Carter in 1816. Another favorite song is ‘My Hope Is Built On Nothing Less.’ It was written by Edward Mote in 1834. ‘Great is Thy Faithfulness’ is another song. It was written by Thomas O. Chisholm in 1923. You may have some of your favorite songs that you can sing throughout the day to the Lord.
Praise him often; love Him; and worship Him. Kneel and bow down to him. He is the only true and living God. Don’t worship idols (things etc.). He is the Great and Mighty, the All Powerful God who is worthy of our praise. Give praise to the one who has set you free. He’s your living hope, and He alone is worthy of all your praise and honor.
God loves us dearly and we should praise him often. He says in Romans 8:38 that nothing in all creation can separate us from His love. When we praise and worship God our minds should be focused upon him, not on self, our worries or other things. Praise and worship draws us into his presence. He invites us to come into His presence so that we can find grace, mercy and peace when we need it. Prayer thanksgiving and praise are great spiritual weapons against the forces of evil. They are keys to unlocking all barriers in life. Using them often and making them a part of your daily lifestyle will strengthen your faith. “When you pray, do not doubt. Believe you receive what you asked and you shall have it,” 1 John 5:14.
