[PC-USA] 2002-07-07 - Passages about Praise

It's pretty obvious that praise is to be an important element in our Christian lives, as there are 291 mentions of praise in the Bible (NASB). Today we will read some passages about the praise of God. I encourage you to do as I am going to this week, and try to consciously praise Him at least once each day. All passages are from the NASB.

Psalm 135:1 Praise the Lord! Praise the name of the Lord.

Psalm 7:17 I will give thanks to the Lord according to His righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High.

Psalm 22:22 I will tell of your name to my brothers and sisters; in the midst of the congregation I will praise you.

Hebrews 2:11 For the one who sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one Father. For this reason Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters, saying, I will proclaim your name to my brothers and sisters, in the midst of the congregation I will praise you.

Psalm 67:3 Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you.

Psalm 117:2 For great is his steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord!

Psalm 150:2 Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his surpassing greatness!

James 5:13 Are any among you suffering? They should pray. Are any cheerful? They should sing songs of praise.

1 Peter 1:6-7 In this you rejoice, even if now for a little while you have had to suffer various trials, so that the genuineness of your faith being more precious than gold that, though perishable, is tested by fire may be found to result in praise and glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
