It is a very common sight to get to my parent’s house and meet my mum praising God. Anyone who ventured into the house or the room she was in at that point in time was enlisted for that praise session. She would appoint unto herself a time frame of say 30 minutes or 1-hr of praise. The most common was 100 praise songs. Through my mum, I've learned the art and act of praise. It is quite easy to praise God when all is well. What about when things are not going according to plan? Or when there is a big problem on ground? During periods of crisis is when my mum amazes me the most. When everyone is weeping over something that has happened and it seems the world has come to an end, my mum would round us up in the sitting room, and start her praise session, which we've all come to term ‘Mummy’s praise school’. While we are busy crying and wiping our eyes, my mum would start praising God with her eyes tightly shut and her tambourine in her hands. After some time, one by one, we tire of the tears and join her in praise. At first weakly and then with gathered strength; I testify today that there is no battle that can withstand the power of praise. Praise is a very sure weapon that can’t ever fail. The bible says God inhabits our praise, so whatever issue we bring praise into, we automatically have brought God into it. Employ the weapon of praise, reap the spoils of ‘war’.
Psalm 100
A Psalm of praise.
Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
PRAYER:  Praise is a deep understanding of God. Father pls help me in an inconvenient situation to praise instead of tears.
