Before going any further with this teaching regarding praising God, it’s imperative that we try to settle a clear distinction between praise and worship, even though there’s strong bond between both of them. While they are similar to each other in several ways; however, they are not exactly the same thing in essence.
Years ago, pastors were asked to rate what they felt were their duties and responsibilities from the most to the least important. All of the pastors listed prayer as the number one item on their list. They were then asked to take the items on their list and rank them according to the amount of time spent on it. Shockingly, prayer which was listed as the most important thing for them to do was last on the list of amount of time spent.
