Prayers of Praise and Worship

The Bible contains some incredible models of prayer given for us to learn and follow.  In the next few blogs I am going to include some of the great prayers in the Scriptures.  The book of Psalms is primarily a book of prayers, some given as songs and poems.  Since there are 150 of those, I won’t include a lot of the Psalms.  Rather, I am going to point you all to other places where people in specific situations offer specific prayers.  In this blog I will give some wonderful prayers of worship, praise, and thanksgiving.
