Prayers to Activate the Power of Praise in You (Praise Your Way – Day 1)

Today’s Reading

O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.  God shall bless us, and all the ends of the earth shall fear him. – Psalm 67:4-7


Welcome to the Day 1 of our 31 Days of Praise Your Way to 2019.

Are you ready to praise God?

Okay, remember this…

Praise is hard work. Praise is challenging. 

You’ll never know until you actually decide to practice praise. That’s when you’ll have loads of stuff crop up. That’s when your mind will declare an all-out war against you.

But then, that’s proof that praise works.

Challenge yourself to praise God in the next 31 days. I said Challenge because we are going to take our eyes off our problems, needs, and troubles and praise God from the depths of our hearts all through this month until we cross over to the new year.

As I said in my last post,

Personal, intentional, praise and thanksgiving doubles your prayer power by over a thousand percent.

Praising God radically transforms our souls. It draws down the presence of God, and empowers us to hear the voice of God easily.

A personal prayer of petition is great. But personal, intentional, praise and thanksgiving is greater.

While our situations may not have completely changed, we can thank God in everything.

When we thank God in our circumstances, what we are doing is confessing that God is bigger than our situations.

All you are required to do daily this month is to spend at least 30 minutes daily and thank God.

How to Participate in the Praise Your Way

  1. Spend 30 (or more) minutes every day in personal praise and thanksgiving. Wake up in the middle of the night and sing and praise and worship God
  2. Pray for others. Spend 10 (or more) minutes every day to pray for others.
  3. No matter how pressing your personal needs are, take your eyes away from them, only praise God and intercede for others
  4.  Whatever can inspire praise and worship in you, involve in it this month – get songs, sing, dance, worship, etc.
  5. Be very very watchful. God will speak to you and give you strange ideas and directions this period. Write down every new thought and revelation that God brings to your heart or through a vision or dream
  6. Share your praise report. Share your testimonies

    Brother Daniel,
    Thank you for providing this information to us. I must say I began tonight by following this post. When I got to the YouTube videos and I began singing along, I started feeling very dizzy and felt like throwing up but I continued to praise our Great Lord and Savior. After praying for others, I finally began to feel better but I recognize that I am being attacked because I choose to praise our awesome God. Please keep these posts coming! God bless you!

    If there’s one area that I’ve been asking the Holy Spirit to help me with, it’s the area of praise/worship. I thank God for this answer and plan to fully participate, in Jesus’ Name! God bless you, Pastor, for feeding and watering God’s flock!!!
