“Praise & Prayers Email” for 03 16 20

Philippians 4:4-8, 4Rejoice in the LORD always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5Let your gentleness be evident to all. The LORD is near. 6Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things.

 

  1. Praise God that He is sovereign and in control of all things. Praise Him for His infinite wisdom. Praise Him for His perfect love. Praise Him for His unlimited power.

Praise Him for His holiness, compassion, grace, mercy, justice, forgiveness, faithfulness, patience, healing power, and personal concern for each one of us. Praise Him for His promises. Praise Him as the creator of the universe and our creator. Praise Him for the New Covenant and that our salvation is by grace through faith and not based on our own works. Praise Him for exchanging our sin for the righteousness of Christ.
