“From you comes my praise in the great congregation; my vows I will perform before those who fear him. The afflicted shall eat and be satisfied; those who seek him shall praise the Lord! May your hearts live forever! All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations shall worship before you. For kingship belongs to the Lord, and he rules over the nations.” (Ps 22:25–28)
When the Lord delivers us in some way, whether it be from an enemy, financial or health crisis, or a difficult time, we should praise the Lord. One way we can praise this Lord is by proclaiming His name to those in our own church, neighborhood, work place, and to the nations, calling all peoples to worship and seek Him.
The Lord is a loving and powerful God. He cares for His children and He desires to answer their prayers. Not only does the Lord desire to answer your prayer, but He is powerful enough to actually answer them. He is the King over all the nations.
Turn to the Lord in your time of need. Call out to Him. When He answers your prayer, praise His name to those around you so that their faith in the Lord will grow as well.
