Hear, O ye kings; give ear, O ye princes; I, even I, will sing unto the Lord ; I WILL SING PRAISE TO THE LORD God of Israel. Judges 5:3. Therefore I WILL GIVE THANKS unto thee, O Lord, among the heathen, and I WILL SING PRAISES unto thy name. He is the tower of salvation for his king: and sheweth mercy to his anointed, unto David, and to his seed FOR EVERMORE. 2 Samuel 22:50-51. For great is the Lord, AND GREATLY TO BE PRAISED: he also is to be feared, (held in reverential awe), above all gods. 1 Chronicles 16:25.  Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, AND PRAISE THY GLORIOUS NAME. 1 Chronicles 29:13. 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, O thou most High. Psalm 9:1-2.  And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, AND SANG PRAISES unto God: and the prisoners heard them. Acts 16:25. And again, PRAISE THE LORD, all ye Gentiles; and laud him, ALL YE PEOPLE. Romans 15:11. And a voice came out of the throne, saying, PRAISE OUR GOD, ALL YE HIS SERVANTS, and ye that fear him, both small and great. Revelation 19:5. Of all that man can do unto the Lord God Almighty, TO PRAISE HIM, HONOUR HIM, AND WORSHIP HIM, is the greatest Calling a man can do. The Lord has given us EVERYTHING, that we would in turn, Praise Him. The Glory of the Lord is all around us, and that right there is enough that all of mankind, saved or not, should Praise the Lord. When ALL is said and done, even the Lost will bow the knee and Praise the Lord before being thrown into the Lake of Fire. Right now, no matter what our situations and circumstances, in all things, WE ARE TO PRAISE THE LORD. It's REALLY good if we do it now, Willingly, Desirously, and from a Pure Heart. Right now is not "practice" Praise, IT IS THE REAL DEAL, and for Believers, it will be FOREVER. Remember, "Praise" is not a "thing" to DO, Praise is the RESULT of YOUR LOVE FOR HIM, AND WHO HE IS, as you, Be Blessed.
