Prayer Resources: Praise

The Prayer that Changes Everything, by Stormie Omartian
From the popular "Power of Praying" series, this is a personal look at how important it is to praise God, reasons to praise and the blessings of praise. 316 pages, short chapters with study questions, available from Lifeway and Amazon.

31 Days of Praise, by Ruth and Warren Myers
If you only buy one book on the topic of prayer--this should be it! This book taught me to pray and praise. It's filled with scripture-based praise-prayers and instructions on developing the “heart-habit” of praise. (My copy is filled with beach sand and candy cane stickiness and coffee stains; it's well-loved.) 157 pages, daily format, available from Lifeway and Amazon. No study questions, but a facilitator could lead a group through this book, using the scripture references to dig deeper into the subject.

Praise Patterns: Magnifying God with Mary of Nazareth, by Ruth J. Leamy
Praise Patterns examines Mary's prayer and discusses the names of God that her praise suggests. This study calls you to remember God's name as He proclaimed it in the Old Testament, look at Jesus revealling that name in the New Testament, and respond to God's name as the Holy Spirit prompts us to spiritual growth. Historical and contemporary praise quotes will encourage you to express your own praises, and the practical ideas will assist you to insert moments of praise into your everyday routines.
To read excerpts from the book, click on READ: Praise Patterns on the label section of this blog (left hand side, scroll down). Available to order here.

I would like to expand my Praise library. Do you have a favorite study on this topic? Please leave a comment and share the title.
