Praise and Worship

One of the most essential elements of prayer life that leads to intimacy with God is the act of praise, adoration and worship.

Psalm 63:4-5 "I will praise you as long as I\ive," vows David. "...My soul will be satisfied as with the riches of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you"

Psalm 22:26 "They who seek the Lord will praise Him- may your hearts live forever!"


Having praised and also thanked Him you now want to be sure every sinned is cleansed and forsaken.

Psalm 66:18 "If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened."

Isaiah 59:2 "But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear"


You should express your gratitude to God. Have a grateful heart.

2 Corinthians 9:15 "Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!"

Philippians 4:6 "In everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God."


Ask earnestly and humbly. Ask for others- and then yourself.

Philippians 2:4 "Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others"

James 1:5 "If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him."
