Prayers of Praise

praiseSometimes we are so overjoyed by God’s goodness that we break forth in praise! If prayer is simply communing with God, and praise is a way of voicing our thanks to Him, then prayer and praise go hand in hand. That’s what happened with Moses!

Moses’ first recorded outbreak of praise came early in the escape and exodus of God’s people. Within a few days of leaving Egypt, things looked pretty bleak. Pharaoh had heard that the Israelites were wandering in the desert. His heart was hardened toward them. And he went after what he thought was a bewildered group lost in the desert (Exodus 14:3).

And there God’s people were! One day they were on the verge of extinction, trapped by the sea before them and by Pharaoh’s advancing army pursuing them from behind. But by the next morning, God had completely destroyed Pharaoh’s forces, powerfully and miraculously drowning them in the sea (verses 5-31).

God’s chosen people had every reason to rejoice—and rejoice they did, heartily and mightily. Our prayers, too, should include praise and thanksgiving. Like Moses, we also have much to be thankful for. Moses said it well: “He is your praise, and He is your God, who has done these great and awesome things which your eyes have seen” (Deuteronomy 10:21).
