Here at the Lighthouse of Prayer, we lift each other up and pray for our needs and those of others we see here and there throughout "blogland" and our daily lives.
“I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart”
"Praise should always follow answered prayer, just like the mist of earth’s gratitude rises when the sun of heaven’s love warms the ground. Has the Lord been gracious to you, and heard your voice as your earnestly pray? Then praise Him as long as you live! Don’t deny a song to Him who has answered your prayer and given you the desire of your heart." Originally written by Charles H. Spurgeon, published in “Mornings and Evenings,” entry for October 30th, AM. Updated to modern English by Darren Hewer, 2008
Because of course, we always want to come back and give glory to Our Lord, praise Him and thank Him. In fact, I'm sure that we had a place long ago when we started here. So since we try to keep everything as a prayer around here, I was not sure how this might work ... but I'm leaving it up to YOU! I have noticed some PRAISE shared in the Prayer Requests more often as I wrote above (which I truly appreciate) but I just wanted to make a special place and point of this again. These can be general or specific (if you can remember prayer requests answered or the month we lifted that prayer). God surely knows. Let's just make a public declaration of how faithful He is.
We tried this back in September 2012 (Part I) then (Part II.) so this will be Part III for 2013 (that's a whole lot of thanks and praise). If you'd like to see how it was done before then go back and read or view a video with some scriptures on PRAISE, just click on Part I. We need to do this more often, but most definitely at the end of a year as this is!
If at all possible, write your PRAISE, ANSWER to prayers or THANKS in a form of a prayer ... Thank you and God bless!
