“I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.” – Psalms 139:14 (NKJV)
1. The act of expressing approval or admiration; commendation; laudation.
2. The offering of grateful homage in words or song, as an act of worship: a hymn of praise to God.
There is nothing greater than being on the receiving end of praise! The feeling brings so much joy to the heart when one is recognized for the things that they do! And just as we enjoy praise so does our Heavenly Father! If we are to receive all that God has to offer not only shall we follow Jesus in all His ways, but we must praise God for all that He has done, and is doing in our lives! We need to give thanks where thanks are due! Praise Him in our words, praise Him in our song, and praise Him with our life! Continually! Daily! Always! Not just on Sunday’s at church!
Let my mouth be filled with Your praise And with Your glory all the day. (Psalms 71:8 NKJV)

We praise God for His loving-kindness: The loving-kindness of God is so great and definitely undeserving! We are all sinners, and in one way or another, we separate ourselves from God when we choose to ignore Him, when we choose to do things without Him, or when we choose to do things against Him in our words and or deeds! Thank God for His loving-kindness and the forgiveness that He has bestowed upon you!

You are holy and great is your name! Your wonders are awesome; your loving kindness is better than life! Your works are too great to count! Thank you for all that you have done, thank you for all that you are doing! And thank you in advance for all that you plan to do! You are indeed magnificent! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for your blessings and your provisions, thank you for your great mercy! Thank you for your great gifts! Without you we are nothing! We praise you in all that you do! We give you our life! In Jesus’ heavenly name we praise you! Amen!
