The Praise Count

1. James Smith calls it soul training in his book, The Good and Beautiful God. I call it the praise count. As a couple make a list of things that you can praise God for right now. It is a list of blessings. List things that you may consider small and list things that you may consider great. List personal things and list global things. Challenge yourselves to make a large list. Set a goal as a couple: 25 things, 50 things, or maybe even 100 things.

2. The Doxology instructs,
Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
James 1:17 says, Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father. We praise God with songs, we praise God with words, and we praise God with our lives. Take a few moments to praise God together in prayer.
