Prayers of Praise–How to Give Words to Your Heart

I used to having trouble figuring out how to construct my own prayers of praise. I repeat hymns and Psalms or use the words “I praise” and “we praise.” Most of my prayers of praise came out more as prayers of thanks.

Then I figured out how to do it. I wasn’t viewing it right.
