I am currently finishing up an excellent book, The Prayer That Changes Everything: The Hidden Power of Praising God by Stormie Omartian (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/search-handle-form/002-2702029-8064033) Oh how this book has opened up my eyes to praise and worship! It shows how giving God his well-deserved glory can sprout wings in your life. I always reserved praise for church and whenever I noticed an answer to my prayers or whenever I was saved from any kind of danger. I had to repent from this. I realized that everyday I wake up and look at my healthy children I should give God His praise. Even on those days I am upset and feeling tired, I should glorify God that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Even when there is nothing to do and nothing going on , I should thank God for just being. Not only has that book showed me how I should be praising God anyway, it also shows how praise and worship defeats demons in your life. How the last thing Satan wants you to do is praise God. Hallelujah! I exalt the one true living God, His son, and the ever watchful Holy Spirit on High. Let's all stop and praise God no matter what is going on in our lives. Bow down, sacrifice, raise your voice, lift your hands and free yourself.
May the peoples praise you, O God; may all the peoples praise you. Psalm 67:3
