Practicing Praise

Psalm 92:1-2 tells us, “It is good to praise the Lord and make music to your name, O Most High; to proclaim your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night.”
This pattern of prayer is the framework for a walk of worship. To declare each morning the many ways in which you are aware of the touch of his love, knowing that you are largely unconscious of how wide, long, deep and high his love is. Then to acknowledge at the close of the day the many ways he displayed his faithfulness throughout the events of the day. It is the pure in heart who see God and train their eyes to see the many ways he displays his love and faithfulness. This practice of praise sets the soul to be more keenly aware of God’s hand as you walk with him throughout the day. Your walk becomes more of a walk of worship as you look for him to guide your steps and use you at any moment. And lest you forget how faithful he was, even though you may have been faithless at the moment, you make it a point to thank him and lay at his feet what he did through you and around you.
“Holy Father, I say with the Psalmist, ‘I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever; with my mouth I will make Your faithfulness known through all generations.’ Please receive my praise and increase my knowledge of Your love and faithfulness that I might praise You more fully. In Jesus’ name.”
