“I will declare your name to my brothers;
In the congregation I will praise you.”
Psalm 22:22 (NIV)
Our times of private deliverance may help a Christian brother or sister if they knew you had a problem that God handled.
In our church we have a time set aside for praises. Some times we have several people stand and give thanks and praise to God. A couple of times in my life, I had to write down the people’s names and a few words of their praises. During these times I didn’t feel God cared about me or He wasn’t helping me with what I wanted Him to.
He had a lesson for me to learn. I got the message and pulled myself away from that ‘pity party’ and realized that I had to find something to praise God for each day. I started keeping a list of praises at the back of my prayer list. Some days I might have one. Other days, I might have multiple praises.
Praising God exalts Him, empowers us, and encourages others.
