Praise should be a part of our every day lives. People become dissatisfied with their lives when their attention goes from what they do have to what they don’t have. We will always have unfulfilled desires, but we shouldn’t allow it to forget all that God has already done for us. There are so many things to praise God for, including your health, friends, family, being alive, work, and so much more. That’s why I created this list of scriptures about praise. I pray you find them helpful to you.
Don’t forget, only you can express your thankfulness to God. No one else can do it for you.
All scriptures are taken from the NKJV unless otherwise noted.
