When you go into prayer, do you often find yourself asking, requesting, or seeking out advice from our Heavenly Father? “Give me, please GOD can you help me, help me with this one thing.” How much of your prayer time consists of praising HIM? Praising him during the day. As you wash clothes or dishes? Giving HIM the glory for all the good things in life. Psalm 150:1:6 Praise the LORD. Praise GOD in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Let everything that breathes sing praises to the LORD. Praise the LORD.
We need GOD in our lives not just for our prayer requests but to honor HIM with praise. To show and feel gratitude for all his creations, his evident love for you, and the gift and power of his word. There is so much to praise him for. For having a goodnight’s sleep. For waking up healthy. For providing a supportive family and friends. For the material things too, like your car and clothes. And job! There is so much beauty in this world that we should take note and thank HIM above for providing such as a beautiful sky, sunshine, and rain. Big and small trees and flowers. The air we breathe. Take time to praise him before putting in your prayer requests. Praise HIM first!
