The words PRAISE THE LORD written in vintage letterpress type

Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD from the heavens; praise him in the heights! Praise him, all his angels; praise him, all his host! Praise him, sun and moon; praise him, all you shining stars! Praise him, you highest heavens, and you waters above the heavens! Let them praise the name of the LORD, for he commanded and they were created. He established them forever and ever; he fixed their bounds, which cannot be passed. Praise the LORD from the earth, you sea monsters and all deeps, fire and hail, snow and frost, stormy wind fulfilling his command! Mountains and all hills, fruit trees, and all cedars! Wild animals and all cattle, creeping things and flying birds! Kings of the earth and all peoples, princes and all rulers of the earth! Young men and women alike, old and young together! Let them praise the name of the LORD, for his name alone is exalted; his glory is above earth and heaven. He has raised up a horn for his people, praise for all his faithful, for the people of Israel who are close to him. Praise the LORD! (Psalm 148, NRSV)

If you ever needed to know why you should praise the Lord, Psalm 148 gives you the reasons…

But what are your reasons?

Why do you praise the Lord?

I praise Him for my life.

I praise Him for my wife.

I praise him for my children.

I praise Him for my pets.

I praise Him for the shelter He has given me.

I praise Him for the people He has surrounded me with.

Why do you praise the Lord?
