Let's Praise the Lord Together

"Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name."
Psalm 100:4

Do you ever find yourself asking God for things more than you are praising Him for everything? God created us to praise Him, "This people I have formed for Myself; they shall declare My praise" (Isaiah 43:21). This week, being the week of Thanksgiving, I'd like us to focus on praising and thanking God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit for who He is. To make it easy, we'll do what's called "Alphabet Praise". This means we will go through the entire alphabet, listing some characteristics and attributes of God for each letter. I'll give you a few characteristics/ attributes of God for each letter to get you started and then you can list some on your own. After we've done our "letters of the day", we'll spend time praising God in prayer.

Ready? Let's get started.
Father God, I praise You because You are

Father God, I thank You that You are my Abba. You are the Bread of Life who gives me life abundantly. I praise You that I can cast all my cares upon You and know. Thank You for delivering me from the pit I was in and directing my paths. I praise You that You are El Elyon, the Lord Most High, who is King over all the earth. You alone are worthy of all my praise.
