Have you wondered, “How do I start praising God? What do I say?”

Psalms 100:4 says, “Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise! Give thanks to Him; bless His name!“.

Thanking God should be easy. There are countless things to thank God for—the food on the table, shelter, being alive and well—the list can go on.

When it came to praise, as a young believer, I didn’t know what and how to praise God. I knew songs, and I knew that was one type of praise, but when I wanted to talk to God, I didn’t know how to start. At that time, I came across a booklet where it had praises of God. That was it; it helped me learn how to magnify God when my flesh wanted to magnify my problems. This booklet helped me for a while to get started on this journey of praise.

Well, I don’t have that booklet with me anymore, nor can I remember everything that was written there, but I listed a few praises to God below that can help you get started if you, like I once was, don’t know what to say when it comes to praising God.

Remember, this is just to get you started and get to know Him, not a formula to follow. Once you know who God is, and what He has done for you, you should say it on your own without referring to any notes. Come on, God loves it when you talk to Him without a script yet know who He is to you and what He has done for you.
