This simple blog is devoted to the greatest privilege that man has ever been given; PRAYER.
The source of praise is the Holy Spirit activating your spirit to express approval and adoration for God’s greatness. As you read through the Scriptures, keep a list of the qualities that you discover about Him: His mercy. His faithfulness, His patience, His everlasting love. Praise Him for His character. Develop the habit of praise during your prayer time.
O Lord, open my lips, that my mouth may declare Thy praise (Ps. 51:15).
Seven times a day I praise Thee, because of Thy righteous ordinances (Ps. 119:164).
As you begin to praise and extol the Lord, your spirit rises up within you to increase your understanding of who He is. Your soul is also strengthened in the process of praise because praise causes faith to grow, and as it grows, you suddenly realize that nothing is too difficult for Him (see Jer. 32:17).
