Praying Is Praising God
When we pray, we enter into His “gates with thanksgiving” (Psalm 100:4), but it is with praise that we press closer into the courts of His presence. Thanksgiving is often our expression to God for what He has already done for us and others. When we praise God, we are expressing adoration toward Him for who He is, and sometimes for what we believe He is going to do in the future. We can praise Him for who He is when we read the Word of God and spend time with Him in prayer.
I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
Father God who spoke this world into existence, We praise Your holy name! You are the Alpha and Omega; there is no other god like You! You have given us Your great love, forgiveness, mercy, wisdom, healing, and peace, and have called us Your own. You sent Your only Son into this world that we might live through Him. We praise You, Father, for who You are! We bless You now and forevermore! We praise You for souls saved and for bringing us true Pentecostal renewal and revival.
