Praise Bible Verses

Isaiah 43 v 21

“The people I formed for myself, that they may proclaim my praise”.

Psalm 42 v 11 (message version)

“Why are you so down in the dumps, dear soul?
Why are you crying the blues?
Fix my eyes on God – soon I’ll be praising again.
He puts a smile on my face.
He’s my God”

Psalm 71 v 14

As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.

Psalm 100 v 1-5

Shout to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness;
Come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his;
We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise;
Give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
His faithfulness continues through all generations.

Revelation 4 v 11

“Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honour and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.

Psalm 95 v 6

Oh come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker.

James 4 v 8

Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.

Psalm 18 v 3

I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.

Psalm 138 (Message version)

Thank you! Everything in me says “Thank you!”
Angels listen as I sing my thanks.
I kneel in worship facing your holy temple,
And say it again: “Thank you!”
Thank you for your love, thank you for your faithfulness;
Most holy is your name,
Most holy is your word.
The moment I called out, you stepped in;
You made my life large with strength.
When they hear what you have to say God,
All earths’ kings will say “Thank you!”
They’ll sing of what you’ve done:
“How great the Glory of God!”
And here’s why: God, high above, see’s far below;
No matter the distance, he knows everything about us.
When I walk into the thick of trouble,
Keep me alive in the angry turmoil.
With one hand strike my foes,
With your other hand save me.
Finish what you started in my, God.
Your love is eternal – don’t quit on me now.

Proverbs 18 v 10

The name of the Lord is a strong fortress:
The godly run to him and are safe.

2 Corinthians 1 v 3-4

All praise to God, the father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.

Proverbs 3 v 5-6

Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

Deuteronomy 31 v 6

Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the Lord your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail or forsake you.
