“Praise the Lord!  Praise the name of the Lord; praise Him, O servants of the Lord, you who stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of our God!”  (Psalm 135:1-2)

What is the purpose of your life?  Is it to bring about praise of your good works?  Is it about the Lord who made you?  We are reminded that we are to be a people who praise the Lord in all circumstances and at all times.  Come then and learn to praise the Lord in season and out of season.  He who made all things is worthy of your praise and worship.  See that the Lord is good.

Lord, I have wandered many places in my life and I am often distracted by the things of this world.  It is not that I need to flatter You, but rather to learn to properly praise You in and through all things.  Teach me, O Lord, to live according to the goodness of Your Word that I may become like Christ and live a life of praise of You who alone is worthy of all honor, praise and glory.

Lord Jesus, bring me close to You that I may walk alongside You and learn from You.  Guide me in the way of eternal life that my life might become one of continuous praise.  Lead me, O Lord, in the way of life that I would honor all of those around me.  Guide me according to the Father’s purpose to do those things which are pleasing in His sight.  Bring me to see that You alone must be the author and finisher of my faith.  Amen.
