Praise His Name
The psalmist calls on us to praise the name of the Lord not just once, but dozens of times. I find it helpful to apply the Names of God, or words we used to describe Him, to my immediate situation. For instance, I might pray, "God, You are Able for this need; Thank You for being my Burden-bearer, my Counselor, my Deliverer; You are Everything to me." As I go through the alphabet thinking of our great God, my faith grows through this act of worship. Maybe this list will be helpful as you offer Him a sacrifice of praise.
