Words in the Dark III: Part 6 – Praise
This week, we begin the final leg of our journey into the Psalms, the presence of God, and the life of prayer. Taking a cue from David’s shameless dancing, we explore prayers of praise. Check out Jesus’s prayer and how it starts with praise “Our Father, in Heaven, Holy is Your Name.” Jesus collects up all of the praises of the Psalms ––of God’s actions and characteristics (his name)––and teaches us how to adore God in a costly way that is more than worth it. Dive into Psalm 145 and see how David’s praise prepares our way to the start of our Lord’s prayer.
