Main Point: Praise is part of prayer.
Summary: Jesus teaches to start a prayer with praise. Psalm 100 is a great example of a prayer of praise, exclaiming that we can shout with joy to the Lord, sing with joy, enter his gates with thanksgiving and praise, and proclaim his unfailing love and goodness.

Family Together Time: Remember to praise God all week with this fun celebration.

  • Read Psalm 100:4 together.
  • Hang streamers or ribbons from all the doorways in your house as a reminder to enter (and exit) rooms with praise!
  • Every time you walk through a doorway this week, tell God one thing that’s awesome about him. You could sing, shout, or just whisper your praise.

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be Thy name,
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen
