"PRAYER"
"Praise and Thanksgiving"
Psalm 34:1-3; 61:8; 71:8; 119:164; 147:1
November 29, 1992

INTRODUCTION:
Praise is adoring God for who He is. (Attributes)
Thanksgiving is thanking God for what He has done. (Works)
T.&:

3. No exercise will result in more healing

worship experience.
5. Until the practice of praise in private is
continuous and free, the practice of praise
corporately will be inhibited by fear,

6. When we praise we are engaging in an- eternal-

7. Better is the practice of praise as we learn
the biblical truth about it. (John 8:32)
