Praise is a two-way street. Your needs are met when you glorify the Father. When you go to God with your worship, He comes to help you with your problems.
When you need understanding … praise your Father through the perfect Person of Jesus Christ. Say, “Our Father,” and your Father, who gave life to you, will understand you.
When you feel lonely … praise your Father through Jesus Christ our intercessor. Say, “Our Father,” and your Father, who knows your nature, will be your helper and your friend.
When you have failed … praise your Father through the blood of Jesus Christ. Say, “Our Father,” and your Father, who knows your failure even before you tell Him, will forgive you and encourage you in doing the right thing.
God reaches down to touch you as you reach up to touch Him.
