Do you struggle offering Praise or Worship to God in your prayer time? Psalms 146 – 150 helped me blossom in expressing my devotion to God for His wonderful character traits. The whole Book of Psalms is a terrific source for growing in praise and adoration. When I read the Psalms my heart leaps and fills with joy. Before long I find myself bursting out in a Hallelujah, Amen or even a song. Doesn’t matter I cannot carry a tune. Praise being lifted up to the One who knows me best, my Creator and Lord, is all that matters.
I love to personalize God’s Word by inserting my name as I read. Doing so brings an unexplainable intimacy to my prayer life; what an added bonus! Several places in these Psalms are ripe for insertion of one’s name. For example Psalm 149 – His praise is in the heart of Sandra; let Sandra rejoice in her Maker; let Sandra be glad in her King. Let Sandra praise His name with dancing and make music to Him with tambourine and harp, for the Lord takes delight in Sandra; (I especially like this). He crowns Sandra in her humbleness with salvation and let Sandra rejoice in this honor and sing for joy on her bed.
Until next time
