We have to maintain an attitude of praise, as Christians. Praise is a form of thanksgiving that we give to God. It’s in praise we reflect on God’s goodness and we sing, or express it in other ways, to God. We should strive to maintain an attitude of praise, it also helps us remain joyful in times where we may be feeling weak.
Dear God, I would like to praise Your name. You are an excellent Father and I am so grateful for Your Essence in my life. Lord, whenever I think of Your goodness I find myself in awe. A joy bubbles within me whenever I dwell on Your faithfulness and Your Love. I will praise Your name, all my days, Father. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
