3 Easy Ways to Praise Jesus More in Your Daily Life

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

When Christ made His triumphal entry into Jerusalem, those who came to worship Him recognized Him as their King. Luke 19:37 says “the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen.” Yet, in spite of this honorable welcome, Christ was soon rejected and crucified.

We should strive to praise Christ every day and not forget the mighty works He performs in our own lives. Elder Bruce R. McConkie once said, “True and perfect worship is in fact the supreme labor and purpose of man.” Praising Jesus is a beautiful way to deepen our faith and cultivate a closer relationship with Him. While attending church is one way to praise Him each Sunday, we can also incorporate praise into our daily lives. Let’s explore three simple and meaningful ways to praise Jesus more throughout our day, allowing His presence to shine brightly in our hearts.

Gratitude: The Power of Thankfulness

Expressing gratitude is a powerful form of praise that can transform our outlook on life. Take a moment each day to reflect on the blessings Jesus has bestowed upon you. It could be something as simple as the gift of a new day, a beautiful sunrise, a loving friend, or even a challenging experience that helped you grow. By recognizing and acknowledging these blessings, we offer thanks to Jesus for His provision and guidance. Practice gratitude by keeping a gratitude journal, sharing blessings with others, or offering a heartfelt prayer of thanksgiving.

Prayer: Communing with Our Savior

Prayer is an essential way to praise Jesus and communicate with Him intimately. Make prayer a regular part of your day, inviting Jesus into your thoughts and conversations. Throughout your day, offer brief prayers of praise, adoration, and thanksgiving. These can be as simple as whispering a heartfelt “Thank you, Lord,” during a peaceful moment or silently praising Him for His goodness while going about your daily tasks. Set aside dedicated time for deeper prayer and reflection, pouring out your love, concerns, and desires to Him. Remember, Jesus delights in our prayers and is always attentive to our voices.

Acts of Service: Loving Others in Jesus’ Name

Praising Jesus extends beyond words; it is also demonstrated through our actions. Seek opportunities to serve others in Jesus’ name. Acts of kindness, compassion, and generosity become acts of worship and praise. Volunteer at a local charity, lend a helping hand to a neighbor in need or simply show love and kindness to those around you. By reflecting Jesus’ love through our actions, we not only honor Him but also inspire others to praise Him in their lives. Remember the words of Jesus, “Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me” (Matthew 25:40).

Praising Jesus in our daily lives doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming. By incorporating gratitude, prayer, and acts of service into our routines, we create an atmosphere of praise and invite Jesus into every aspect of our lives. These simple yet powerful practices help us develop a deeper connection with our Savior and allow His light to shine through us. As we intentionally praise Jesus, let us remember that our words, thoughts, and actions can be a source of inspiration and encouragement to those around us. May our lives be a continuous symphony of praise, glorifying His name in all that we do.
