I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works. I will be glad and rejoice in thee, I will sing praise to thy name, thou most High. When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence. For, thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest in the throne judging right.
Today's discussion is the third in my five-part series on prayer; today's focus is on God's deliverance of His people. It is known that at praises go up to God then blessings come down from Him.
Believers are encouraged to have a fervent prayer life as prayer is part of our spiritual conflict. The more we commune with God, then an intimate relationship develops, which is what God wants.
That said, when we petition God through prayer for something, that then begin to praise Him for His deliverance and His answer to our prayers, because He is a prayer answering God. We are to believe in our prayers because God looks at the heart and knows the sincerity of one's prayer request. We must believe in our prayer. Christ encouraged all believers to pray in faith, and in His name and it shall be granted unto us. We are to align our prayer requests with the will of God.
Let me close by saying, praising God is a form of worship; therefore, praise Him while petitioning God. He is waiting to deliver.
Praise Him! Praise Him! Praise God for His deliverance.
