Welcome to our website

PRAISE AND THANKSGIVING

to our awesome HOLY GOD

Prayer, praise and thanksgiving are all rolled together in one. A close association exists between them all. Praise and thanksgiving are very much alike; so it is not easy to distinguish between the two, nor describe them separately.

There are many reasons to be thankful and to praise God. The Psalms are filled with songs of praise and thanksgiving; all pointing to prayer being answered. Thanksgiving really is gratitude. It really is our inward heart-felt gratitude to God for all mercies He has bestowed upon us. Gratitude is an inward emotion of the heart and soul, which rises involuntarily within us; while thanksgiving is our voluntary expression of that gratitude. Thanksgiving is spoken, direct and active. It is words given out to God, which is actually the "fruit of our lips" (Heb. 13:15). Thanksgiving and praise are done in the open, and not hidden.

Gratitude is secret, silent, passive, not showing itself until it is expressed in our praise and thanksgiving. Gratitude is a feeling in the heart; while thanksgiving is the expression of that inward feeling. Thanksgiving is simply giving thanks to God for something He has done for us. It is a "sacrifice of praise" (Heb. 13:15) to God any time we express in words, the gratitude which we feel in our heart for blessings we have received. Heart felt gratitude should not be held back, but always expressed. The gratitude we feel generates our thanksgiving and praise to God for all His mercies.

Praise is showing our gratitude and commitment to God for all the mercies He has bestowed upon us. When we think of all the past mercies and blessings, our heart is inwardly moved. We are grateful to Him. When our prayers are answered, it creates gratitude within us, and that gratitude accompanies a love that gladly declares it. When we consider Godís mercies to us, it not only produces gratitude, but brings about exaltation to God for all that we have and are. Prayer, thanksgiving and exaltation are joined together. Gratitude and thanksgiving looks to the past, and prayer looks to what is to come. Thanksgiving is inspired by things already received, prayer is concerned with things we still need, and expect from Him. Prayer changes to gratitude and praise when the things we have asked for have been given by God. Answered prayer promotes our gratitude and thanksgiving, and praise and gratitude promote prayer; itís a never ending circle!

Gratitude, thanksgiving and praise are completely opposite of grumbling and complaining. Gratitude and complaining never live in the same heart! Unappreciation and indifference cannot reside with gratitude and praise. Being dissatisfied and discontent are enemies of gratitude, thanksgiving and praise. Anyone who complains is ungrateful! God is grieved when we murmur and complain. IF we murmur and complain, we will not praise and thank God. We must not forget God, His goodness and His mercies. We should ALWAYS be thankful (Col. 3:15). Praise and thanksgiving is what we will do in the eternal realm of Heaven; and we will never, ever grow weary of this pleasant task.
