Praise

Psalm 29:1-2 calls us to celebrate God’s greatness:

Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness.

To this psalm we could add many others that call us to praise God for who he is – a great and glorious God. 

Is this part of your prayer life?  Do you praise God for his greatness? 

The Psalms can help us learn to praise God for his greatness.  Many of the Psalms give us words to use to convey our praises.  Many hymns and choruses also give us words to use in praising God for who he is.  Indeed, when we sing praises to God we are merely setting our prayers to music. 

As we praise God for his greatness, we ought also to praise God for his many blessings.  Psalm 117 call us to:

Praise the Lord, all nations!  Extol him, all peoples!
For great is his steadfast love toward us,
and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.
Praise the Lord!

By his love and faithfulness, God showers us with countless blessings, and we should praise him for them.

Is this part of your prayer life?  Do you praise God for his blessings?  When he answers a prayer or sends some good thing into your life, are you quick to praise him?

We have a great God who blesses us immensely.  As such, praise should be a big part of our prayers.
