10 Days of Praise: Day 7

Today just praising God because He is.  Not because of something He has done.

Praise God because He has given us His Word so we know stuff like this:

Praise God in our weakness!  This year has been one of those years where we reside in weakness.  Portions of this prayer really hit home and lift our eyes to God and out of our current situation.
God is strong, and powerful, and able to turn the world around on its head.  When our world is upside down, God can turn it around.  And when we have nothing left, God says 'it's okay you weren't doing it with your power but with mine.'  

Praise God, together, today.

1 Samuel 2 (NET Bible)
Hannah Exalts the Lord in Prayer
Hannah prayed,
"My heart rejoices in the Lord;
my horn is exalted high because of the Lord.
I loudly denounce my enemies,
for I am happy that you delivered me.
No one is holy like the Lord!
There is no one other than you!
There is no rock like our God!
Don't keep speaking so arrogantly,
letting proud talk come out of your mouth!
For the Lord is a God who knows;
he evaluates what people do.
The bows of warriors are shattered,
but those who stumble find their strength reinforced.
Those who are well-fed hire themselves out to earn food,
but the hungry no longer lack.
Even the barren woman gives birth to seven,
but the one with many children withers away.
The Lord both kills and gives life;
he brings down to the grave and raises up.
The Lord impoverishes and makes wealthy;
he humbles and he exalts.
He lifts the weak from the dust;
he raises the poor from the ash heap
to seat them with princes
and to bestow on them an honored position.
The foundations of the earth belong to the Lord,
and he has placed the world on them.
He watches over his holy ones,
but the wicked are made speechless in the darkness,
for it is not by one's own strength that one prevails.
