Prayer of Adoration & Thanksgiving – Day 2
Revelation 15:3-4 3 They sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying: “Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the saints! 4 Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your name? For You alone are holy. For all nations shall come and worship before You, For Your judgments have been manifested.”
“Adoration is the spontaneous yearning of the heart to worship, honor, magnify, and bless God. We ask nothing but to cherish him. We seek nothing but his exaltation. We focus on nothing but his goodness.” - Richard J. Foster
At graduation there are levels of honor bestowed on those who have done a good job. There is cum laude, magna cum laude, and summa cum laude.
In the realm of giving praise, there is high praise, higher praise, and highest praise. Your friends can get high praise, and some folk who blessed you or have been merciful may deserve a higher praise, but God is the only one who deserves the summa cum laude of the highest praise. This kind of praise should be reserved for Him.
1. When is the last time that you spontaneously worshipped God?
2. Do you praise others more than you praise God?
