#DIRECT FROM PAPA: from the book of the month, Understanding the Power of Praise...

"Praise is cardinal to the believer, because it is his cheapest access to the Most High God. It is also one his surest accesses to the realm of the miraculous. Praise is also a preservative of the blessings of God. Blessings may come without it, but it takes praise to preserve the blessings. It is to one’s blessings what salt is to meat – it keeps it from decaying.” Page 4

“Unfortunately, the power in praise has been ignored in the body of Christ. People think it is for those who don’t know how to pray, but that is far from the truth. I have proved in my life that praise is much more effectual than the longest fast any man can engage in. Also, although prayer (no matter how fervent) has its place, it cannot compete with praise in potency. Praise makes things work cheaply.” Page 5

“There is no way you can use scientific measures to understand the truth of the gospel, because it is far above it. Science cannot authenticate the truth. God says: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways (Isaiah 55:8). That is why we cannot use the wisdom of this world to authenticate the truth of God’s word. You have to be spiritually minded to grasp the things of God. Embrace the ‘foolishness’ of the gospel, so that your wisdom can be established upon the earth, because the foolishness of God is wiser than men and His weakness is stronger than men. So whatever He tells you to do, do it, or you keep going in circles.” Page 6

“There’s a degree of comfort and restful confidence that comes on those who live a praiseful lifestyle.” Page 7 (See Genesis 49:8-9)

“Do you want to go up? Praise is the ladder to use. Just trigger off that Judaic nature inside you! You will be so restful. You will couch like a lion, and when you wake up, anything you find will be food for you.” Page 8
