Praise Him

Prayerwalking is a date, an appointment with my Personal Trainer for becoming a woman of discipline, strength, and prayer. He meets me as I’m stepping out the door. He accepts my praise and thanks and lets me worship him in silent, reverential awe. In the allegorical Song of Songs the beloved says of her lover, “How right they are to adore you!” (1:4). In adoration I come closest to experiencing heaven here on earth. It is perhaps preparation for my heavenly life, when I will fall down and worship him forever. Saint Augustine said, “Those who look for the Lord will cry out in praise of him, because all who look for him shall find him, and when they find him they will praise him.” These prayers of adoration allow us to find our complete satisfaction in God alone—his love, his care, his presence. It is enough.

Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning.
Jesus, to Thee be all glory giv’n;
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing!
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him, Christ, the Lord!
