BIBLE PASSAGE: Psalms 67:3-7

[3] Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.

[7]God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.

MEMORY VERSE: “I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvelous works.” Psalms 9:1

INTRODUCTION: In our day-to-day dealing with ourselves, thanksgiving and praises are considered very important especially when we receive any help from anyone.

This show of appreciation usually acts as an impetus to receiving similar assistance or gifts in the future. We as Christians should know that God who is our Father loves us even more than our earthly father does.

The only thing we can do in order to show our appreciation is by praising Him no matter the circumstances that come on our way.

We must cultivate the habit of praising God and thanking Him all the days of our lives. The first principle a Christian should learn, should be how to develop the habit of praising God (Ps.105:1-3)

LESSON OUTLINES
LESSON OUTLINE 1: WHY SHOULD WE
PRAISE GOD?
Question 1: Why Should We Praise God?

Answer: The teacher should highlight the reasons believers should praise God as follows:

1. If we want our lives to be full of miracles and wonders, it is necessary for us to know that the formula is in praising God.

2. The attributes of God are sufficient reasons for us to praise Him.

i. That is one reason the angels praise God continuously (lsa.6:3).

ii. God’s holiness is linked with His glory. He is glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders (Ex. 15:11).

3. When we praise God, we have victories
over our enemies (Ps.18:3).

4. We should praise God for His goodness and His wonderful works (Ps.107:8). If we praise God, He will take note and this will gladden His heart (Ps.22:3).

5. God is righteous and His righteousness demands that we should praise Him.

6. God is a jealous God and His Jealousy demands that we must show His sovereignty over all things by praising Him (Exodus 34:14).
He is the only One and demands for Himself alone worship and praises to which He has a right (Ex.20:3-4).

7. Praise is an acceptable sacrifice before God (Heb 13:15).

CLASS ACTIVITY 1: Students should mention the importance of praising God.

LESSON OUTLINE 2: ACCEPTABLE PRAISE

Question: What does it take to offer acceptable praise to God?

Note: The teacher should first allow the students to answer the question in their own words.

Answer: 1. Even though God is universal for all mankind, yet He accepts praise from those who draw near to Him in holiness and repentance (James 4:8; Ps.24:3-5)

2. To offer acceptable praise to God, it is necessary to be a child of God. We must confess our sins to God and repent from them (1 John 1:8-10; 2 Cor.5:17). It is after this that your sacrifice of praise can be acceptable to God.

CLASS ACTIVITY 2: Students should discuss things that make up unacceptable praise.

SUMMARY: It is not enough to praise God; we must ensure that our praise is acceptable to Him

CONCLUSION: Praising God is the only thing we can do for Him. It is an inevitable aspect of worshipping God.

EVALUATION: Why should believers praise God?

CLOSING PRAYER: Father, let me always offer acceptable praise to You in Jesus’ name.

ASSIGNMENT: Give five (5) reasons some people find it hard to praise God.
