The Bible says we are to enter into the presence of God with praise and thanksgiving. The Lord’s Prayer starts with praise. “Hollowed be Thy name” means we come to God and honor Him, worship Him, and praise Him. Sometimes we rush through our grocery list without saying anything good about God. What motivates us? Our needs. But first God wants us to open the prayer gate with worship and praise. Use the names of God, the Psalms, anything that will help you praise. If we first do not see God high and lifted up in all His greatness and power, we won’t have the confidence that He can answer our prayers. Make God big in your prayer before you do anything else. Praise Him first. AMEN. (Read this scripture Psalm 100:4)
