While I live I will praise the Lord�
Ps. 146:1-3: Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, O my soul! While I live I will praise the Lord; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.� Grant, Lord, that we share the desire and longing the Psalmist had: sing praises to our God while we have our being.� May the Holy Spirit fill our heart continually and help us to sing praises (Eph.5:18-19) while we live.� Note: sing praises.� We may sing verses from the Psalms, for example, Ps. 63:3-4: Because Your loving-kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise You. Thus I will bless You while I live; we will lift up our hands in Your name.� Note while I live� in this passage also. A thankful, spirit-filled heart gives praise, and is filled with the Spirit as it gives thanks. Amen.
Thankful for your prayers,
