Do you praise God?


Recently I was going through the ‘Catechism of the Catholic Church’, so that I further enrich my faith and be formed better. I came across the paragraph 2639 which forms part of the section ‘Prayer of Praise’ which really made me wonder. The following is the paragraph:

‘’Praise is the form of prayer which recognizes most immediately that God is God. It lauds God for his own sake and gives him glory, quite beyond what he does, but simply because HE IS. It shares in the blessed happiness of the pure of heart who love God in faith before seeing him in glory. By praise, the Spirit is joined to our spirits to bear witness that we are children of God, testifying to the only Son in whom we are adopted and by whom we glorify the Father. Praise embraces the other forms of prayer and carries them toward him who is its source and goal: the “one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist.”

Paragraph 2639, brought a couple of questions to my mind to share with you the following….

Do you recognize and believe that God is God?

Do you know God in a personal way?

Do you praise God?

Praising God should be part of our daily prayers and way of life as Christians. Praying the Psalmsor doing charity are an example of prayers of praise, of how one can express his love to God. To praise God, of course it is very important that you believe that God is God, and to know God in a personal way

This is my encouragement I want to bring forward to you… to praise God in your daily life.
