The Transforming Power of Praise

 2020.03.Power of Praise.main blog image

Whether we are at home with the Sisters or in the context of our community Disciples of Jesus, praise is one of my favourite ways of praying. In praising God I am reminded about the fundamentals of what I believe and no matter what is happening or how I feel the reality is that God is Good and worthy of praise. It reorientates my life. God is always faithful and always desires the best for our lives. In Praising God I am able to affirm this truth and to consciously bring myself into the presence of the Holy Spirit. Being in relationship with the Holy Spirit allows my spirit to rise in praise of God who is unchangeable and is constant. This reality transforms my life and helps me to see the world with gratitude.


Praise times in our community remind me that fundamentally that our entire mission is founded in prayer and faithfulness. In praise I am reminded that God is Lord of all and that surrendering into this type of prayer reminds me that as I give Glory to God I am able to take this gift into all that I do.
