Most people don’t really know which of these two tools gets more speedy and efficient result when used for making supplications. This post would give an answer to this.
Prayer is talking and hearing from God. Whenever you pray for something, God sends your angel to you to help you in whatever way you desire. When Peter was in prison, the bible recorded that ‘…prayers was made of the church without ceasing'[Acts 12:5] and as a result of these prayers, ‘…the angel of the lord came upon him'[Acts 12:7]. Daniel also prayed and an angel was sent unto him- ‘Yea while I was yet speaking in prayers, even the man Gabriel…touched me…'[Daniel 9:21].
On the other hand, praising God is thanking, honouring, and glorifying His name. When you praise God, He gets up, moves closer to you and does all the needed job because He inhabits the praises of His people. He would never allow any angel come close to you because He will never share His glory with any man. Whenever you praise God, He takes over your battles and then, turns you into a mere spectator. Jehoshaphat and the children of Isreal praised Him and He took over their battle- ‘And when they began to sing praises, the Lord set ambushment against the children of Ammon, Moab and Mount Seir, and they were all smitten'[2 Chronicles 20:15]. When Joshua came face to face with the wall of Jericho, he praised God and the walls couldn’t withstand God’s presence- ‘…when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat…'[Joshua 6:20]. Also, when Paul and Silas were in the prison, they prayed but their prayers had no effect before they decided to step up their supplications to the next level- ‘Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises unto God…And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken and immediately, all the doors were opened and everyone’s band were loosed[Acts 16:25-26]. God had to be present at the prison to inhabit the praises of Paul and Silas hence, the earthquake had to occur.
Furthermore, in grammar, if pray is singular and you want to make it plural, you have to add an ‘s’ to it. It then becomes prays[praise]. What this means is that the effect of praise is always minimum the double of the effect of pray. Therefore, if pray can give you a house, praise can you a minimum of two houses.
Now I want you to answer this question- PRAY OR PRAISE- WHICH DOES MORE?
