THE POWER OF PRAISES AND THANKSGIVING

God answers prayers but responses faster when you praise him. There are so many instances in the bible where God did wondrous works through praises. In Joshua 6: the walls of Jericho fell down flat after the Israelites went round it for 7 days, singing praises to God. David the Psalmist won God’s heart through praises. He is known as “the man after God’s hearts”.
Prayer touches God but praise moves him.

BENEFITS AND EFFECTS OF PRAISING AND THANKING GOD

There are numerous benefits and effects of singing praises to God. But I will share only five of them with you. In Acts 16:16-40, Paul and Silas were put to prison at Philipp: while in prison, they prayed to God and sang praises to God and he set them and other prisoners free. This is the power and benefit of praising God in difficult moments.
Now let me reveal the five benefits you gain for praising and thanking God.

1. THROUGH PRAISES, GOD SHAKES THE FOUNDATION OF YOUR PROBLEMS: 

While Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God at about midnight, suddenly, there was a violent earthquake, which shook the prison to its foundation. So does the foundation of your problems shake when you sing hymns of praises to God in your trying moments.

2. THE DOORS AND CHAINS HOLDING YOU BACK IN YOUR PROBLEMS OPEN AND BREAK: 

Also Paul and Silas were praying and singing praises to God, all the doors of the prison opened and the chains fell off all the prisoners. So does the doors and chains withholding in your problems fall off then you pray and sing praises to God in your problems.

3. YOUR ENEMIES BECOME CONFUSED WHEN YOU PRAISE GOD: 

Prayers and praises put your enemies into confusion and they will start killing one another. 2nd Chronicles 20 narrates how the people of Judah defeated the Ammonites, Moabites and Edomites with only songs of praise. This happened when Jehoshaphat was king of Judah. He prayed to God and the Lord promised to give him victory over his enemies. As the matched out for war, the musicians went ahead of the army, singing praises to God. When they began to sing, God put confusion among their enemies and they began to kill one another. Before the Judean army could reach the battle ground, the saw that their enemies were lying dead on the ground. Not even one had escaped. That is the power and effect of praises.

4. PRAISES BRING DIVINE GOOD NEWS: 

Praises move God to send good news. Now hear this short story:
One of my friends, Dr. George (a medical doctor) is a true child of God. One day while he was on duty attending to patients, a pregnant women came in. The woman has been pregnant for eighteen months (One year and six months). Her family and friends now mock her and advise to go for fibroid surgery. So while the woman was laying her problems, God ministered to Dr. George to tell the woman that she would deliver safely if only she can praise him. Dr. George together with the woman song praise to God for an hour and she went home. 

Some weeks later, while Dr. George was on leave, one day he received a phone call from a woman. The woman introduced himself as Mrs. Janet, the women was pregnant for eighteen month. She joyfully broke the good news that she just delivered of a set of twins – a boy and a girl. Dr. George could not believe this until he visited the hospital and confirmed it. This is another effect of praises. 

5. PRAISES BRING HEAVENLY ARREST AND REPENTANCES: 

In the story of Paul and Silas in prison at Philippi, in Acts 16:27:34, the prison guard and his household were spiritually arrested and the repented and were baptized. Praise leads to repentance and heavenly arrest. Which is more important, prayer or praise?

PRAYER VERSUS PRAISE 

Now let me compared prayer and praise and their relationship. The truth remains that PRAYERS TOUCH GOD BUT PRAISES MOVE HIM

When you pray, God answers you but not as fast as he would when you sing praises to him. I will recommend you to combine prayer and praise but stay more of praises because it moves God.

THE RISKS OR DANGERS OF CONDEMNING SOMEONE GIVING PRAISE TO GOD

God does not pardon those who condemn or mock people because they are singing praises and dancing to God. It is better that you don’t sing praises to God but don’t condemn those who do.

In 2nd Samuel 6, as the covenant bore was brought to Jerusalem, David danced unto the Lord until his wrapper almost fell off without his notice before the whole Israel. His wife, Michal the daughter of Saul mocked him and God struck her with barrenness, she never had any child.

So never for any reason mock someone who is singing and dancing to God. Even if you would not sing or dance, keep your mouth shut.
