If we are going to get better at prayer we have to have a full encounter with God the Father. That is why the Bible and the Holy Spirit are so important to us in prayer – they provide that encounter. Praise also brings about that encounter. God Inhabits the Praises of His People
Psalm 22 v 3
“But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.”
I often use this quote when we are praying – This is not just a statement we use to encourage people to sing – it is true. Your whole prayer life will change if you begin it with praise, because that will give you a God encounter and prayer will flow out of that encounter.
What can you praise God for this morning as you come into His presence?
