5 Categories of Prayers of Praise and thanksgiving
Prayer is not all about asking God for things, we also pray to praise his name. God deserves our praise because he is a God who never stops doing. His mercies are immeasurable.
His favours are unquantifiable, his goodness is unfathomable. He is such a good father.
It is okay to take a break from our needs or desires and dash into boundless praise unto our God. Praise is a powerful weapon for believers.
Many know this but seldom deploy it. Praise is a soulful acknowledgement of who God is and all he is done. We can praise him for what he did in the past, what he is doing now and what we are trusting him to do.
Do not allow any unfulfilled desire to stand in the way of your praise to God. When you praise God your challenges lose their weight, your spirit is lifted and you are empowered to surmount your challenges.
God inhabits the praises of his people. As you praise God over any issue, you are releasing the issue to be handled by God. Rest assured that he does a good job with any issue that is handed over to him.
Praise is a command. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord(Psalm 150:6). Because you carry the breath of God in you, you owe God praise
