I love this praise and worship song.

By There is power in Praise! My Praise is a Weapon! There is a song that Eddie James sings on his Freedom CD called Lion of Judah

My Praise is a Weapon -
My Praise Is a Weapon
Yes it's a declaration
My God is King
He can do anything



My Praise is a Weapon
Yes it's a revelation
If God be for me
Tell me who can be against me



No weapon formed against me
by the enemy shall prosper
But I've got a weapon that will always have power
My weapon is praise, for the rest of my days
I'm stomping on the devil as I lift Jesus name



Alpha, Omega, Jehovah, Messiah



Healer, Deliverer, My Victory from the enemy



I praise You, I lift You up

I am praising God for His goodness today!!! I am going to extend this challenge for an entire year and am excited to see how a lifestyle of praise will deepen my relationship with God!!! :drunk:

Another great teaching on praise - this is just a small snippet...

http://lost2found.tripod.com/PandW.html

God is enthroned in our praises – Ps. 22:3. He sits on, inhabits our praises. God sits on a throne, so when we praise Him we are offering Jesus a throne to sit upon, in this way you acknowledge Him as your King. Praise doesn't command or bring God's presence, but it acknowledges that He is present.

Praise is not so much God coming into our presence, as it is our going into His presence. Praise is to lead us out into God's presence. As we praise Him we go up to His mountain, Ps. 132:13-14. And God is there to meet us. Ps. 132:15-16. We are entering His gates not Him entering our gates. Draw near to Him so will He draw near to us, Jas 4:8. The problem is never with God it is always with us. We need to ascend unto the Lord in our hearts.Isa 29:13, 2:3, Ps. 24:3-4

Hebrews 13: 15 -16 Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that confess his name. 16And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.

To God be the glory for the things that he has done. Praise the Lord!

I thank the Lord for His protection today, and every day!

PROV 18:10
The name of the LORD is a strong tower;
the Righteous run to it and are safe.


I know He can....
I know He will....
Fight my battles.
Jesus is a Fence all around me -- EVERYDAY

^^These scriptures are wonderful, please keep them coming! I was just thinking about the strong tower scripture, and now I know where it is found! :yep: I choose one verse each day, and in this way I am able to memorize the word little by little. I include the verses in my prayers to continually reinforce God's faithfulness, goodness, power and promises to me, and to WAR with His word. It is working!!! :grin:

My testimony - during this praise challenge, we FINALLY got a buyer for our house!!! I believe praise broke the blessing free. This is our SECOND time on the market. We were on last year but had to get off and handle repairs. We didn't receive a single offer. :nono: This year we had been on several weeks with no offer and I was starting to get discouraged. But instead I began praying, and most recently joined the praise challenge, and God blessed mightily. I have been wanting to sell for a few years, and I am so grateful that it is finally happening!!! :drunk:

As stated before I am going to continue praising for an entire year. (I doubt I'll stop there but I will track the impact of praise on my life over the next year). Aside from any natural blessings, I am reaping a sound and peaceful mind! I am going through a tremendously serious life transition (heartbreaks, disappointments, close relationships ending, unwanted people being chained to my life, opportunities to reap the benefit of my hard-earned degree limited, saddled down with debts that aren't mine), and many women might be crying daily under these circumstances. But I am praising God for 30 - 60 minutes daily, in addition to morning praises and throughout the day, and God has kept my mind at peace. In fact, I am smiling and happy, DESPITE what has been thrown at me.

Ladies, keep praising. It might look grim. You might have to cry sometimes. But keep praising. God WILL deliver you. He is not a man that He should lie. He cannot lie. Obey Him, praise Him, then stand still and see the salvation of the Lord!!! :drunk:

Chronicles 29:10-13 David's Prayer
10 David praised the LORD in the presence of the whole assembly, saying,
"Praise be to you, O LORD,
God of our father Israel,
from everlasting to everlasting.

11 Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power
and the glory and the majesty and the splendor,
for everything in heaven and earth is yours.
Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom;
you are exalted as head over all.

12 Wealth and honor come from you;
you are the ruler of all things.
In your hands are strength and power
to exalt and give strength to all.

13 Now, our God, we give you thanks,
and praise your glorious name.

Thanks be to God he is worthy to be praised!

Psalm 47

1 Clap your hands, all you nations;
shout to God with cries of joy.

2 How awesome is the LORD Most High,
the great King over all the earth!

3 He subdued nations under us,
peoples under our feet.

4 He chose our inheritance for us,
the pride of Jacob, whom he loved.
Selah

5 God has ascended amid shouts of joy,
the LORD amid the sounding of trumpets.

6 Sing praises to God, sing praises;
sing praises to our King, sing praises.

7 For God is the King of all the earth;
sing to him a psalm [a] of praise.

8 God reigns over the nations;
God is seated on his holy throne.

9 The nobles of the nations assemble
as the people of the God of Abraham,
for the kings of the earth belong to God;
he is greatly exalted.

All praise and honor unto the Lord!

I love God today because he cares for me in such a special way. Even when I'm not my best or I mess up or make mistakes or act up, he still cares for me. And that is so reassuring :)

I Love you,
I Love you,
I Love you, Lord Today
Because you care for me,
In such a special way
That's why I Praise you,
I lift you up, I magnify your Name.
That's why my heart is filled with Praise!

Part of me wants to break down and cry today, but another part of me is saying “Praise the Lord.”

“What a mighty God we serve
What a mighty God we serve
Angles bow before Him
Heaven and earth adore Him
What a mighty God we serve.”

“I will bless the Lord at all times and His praise will continually be in my mouth.”

Matthew 21:18 Now in the morning, as He returned to the city, He was hungry. 19 And seeing a fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it but leaves, and said to it, “Let no fruit grow on you ever again.” Immediately the fig tree withered away.
The Lesson of the Withered Fig Tree

20 And when the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, “How did the fig tree wither away so soon?”
21 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. 22 And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.

Praise be to God who gives each of us a measure of faith.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

I used this as my FB praise scripture of the day just now! :yep:

That is exactly when I used to sing it . Lately a lot of songs I used to sing in church as a kid and teen have been coming to mind.

Me too, I was singing another song from back in the day about a week ago. :yep:

Something beautiful, something good
All of my confusion, He understood
All I had to offer Him was emptiness and strife
But He made something beautiful out of my life

Not exactly a kiddie song, but the choir did sing it when I was a kid.

Psalm 91

1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. [a]

2 I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust."

3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare
and from the deadly pestilence.

4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,

6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.

7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.

8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.

9 If you make the Most High your dwelling—
even the LORD, who is my refuge-

10 then no harm will befall you,
no disaster will come near your tent.

11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;

12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation."

Phillipians 4- 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 everything, 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, 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. 9Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

Praise the Lord for the peace that passeth all understanding

I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high. (Psalms 7:17)

REJOICE in the LORD, O ye righteous: [for] praise is comely for the upright.

Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery [and] an instrument of ten strings.

Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.

For the word of the LORD [is] right; and all his works [are done] in truth.

He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD. (Psalms 33:1-5)

The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say, Praise the LORD of hosts: for the LORD [is] good; for his mercy [endureth] for ever: [and] of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the LORD. For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at the first, saith the LORD. (Jeremiah 33:11)

his praise will always be on my lips.
My soul will boast in the LORD;
let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
Glorify the LORD with me;
let us exalt his name together.
I sought the LORD, and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.
This poor man called, and the LORD heard him;
he saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him,
and he delivers them.
Taste and see that the LORD is good;
blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
Fear the LORD, you his saints,
for those who fear him lack nothing.

Psalm 103

1Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

3Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

4Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

5Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.

6The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.

7He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.

8The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

9He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.

10He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

11For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

12As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

13Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.

14For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.

15As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.

16For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.

17But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;

18To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.

19The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.

20Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

21Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.

22Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.

Praising the Lord today for his reassuring presence as he continues to perfect that which concerns me.
