Denise DeOliveira on Praising God

This dynamic three and a half minute prayer sequence was taken from the end of one of Assistant Pastor Denise DeOliveira's Bible teachings.

"Praise the Lord from the earth", based on Psalm 148.
Denise says "The book of Psalms is the 'praise book' of the Bible. The Psalms contain many reasons to praise God and gives us lots of examples of how to do so".

1 Praise the LORD. Praise the LORD from the heavens;
   praise him in the heights above.
2 Praise him, all his angels;
   praise him, all his heavenly hosts.
3 Praise him, sun and moon;
   praise him, all you shining stars.
4 Praise him, you highest heavens
   and you waters above the skies.

 5 Let them praise the name of the LORD,
   for at his command they were created,
6 and he established them for ever and ever—
   he issued a decree that will never pass away.

 7 Praise the LORD from the earth,
   you great sea creatures and all ocean depths,
8 lightning and hail, snow and clouds,
   stormy winds that do his bidding,
9 you mountains and all hills,
   fruit trees and all cedars,
10 wild animals and all cattle,
   small creatures and flying birds,
11 kings of the earth and all nations,
   you princes and all rulers on earth,
12 young men and women,
   old men and children.

 13 Let them praise the name of the LORD,
   for his name alone is exalted;
   his splendor is above the earth and the heavens.
14 And he has raised up for his people a horn,
   the praise of all his faithful servants,
   of Israel, the people close to his heart.

   Praise the LORD.
