Praise and prayers

Life can really bog us down if we do these few things in our daily routine. A couple different things can dampen my spirit, one of which is looking to far into the future, fretting over things that have yet to come. Second is keeping all of our focus on life’s little struggles making them out to be bigger than they really are. Last but not least, not praying and giving God the praises for all the good things in our day. It can feel tough at times when we are going through trials in our life to fold our hands and give thanks to the Lord above. Why would we do this? We do this because through these trials God give us grace and strength to overcome. Next time you get a speeding ticket, fold your hands and praise God for the fact that you didn’t get into an accident or for the officers day to be full of blessings. Look for the good in every situation and give your praise through prayer. Doing this increases our positive outlook on life and starts a great habit. When a family member is sick or badly injured in the hospital thank God for giving you and that member the strength to carry on even if you feel weak. 2 Chronicles 5:13, The trumpeters and musicians joined in unison to give praise and thanks to the LORD. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, the singers raised their voices in praise to the LORD and sang:”He is good; his love endures forever.” Then the temple of the LORD was filled with the cloud
