I want to create a new word: praiseorama.
My concept for praiseorama originates from panorama. A panorama is defined as an unobstructed and wide view of an extensive area in all directions.
I suggest that a praiseorama is a portrait of a spiritual atmosphere of positive praise. No derogatory words, thoughts or actions to obstruct our perfect view of God. Just praise in every direction.
Click – click – click. A camera records visual images. Then, numerous individual photos are combined to create a panorama. Speak – speak – speak. We declare our praise unto the Lord. Then, we gather together a multitude of verbal declarations to create a praiseorama.
The following verses are appropriate scriptures to speak forth.
Sing to the LORD! Give praise to the LORD!
O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt His name together.
Psalm 34:3 NKJV
Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise;
give thanks to Him and praise His name.
Because Your loving devotion is better than life,
my lips will glorify You. So I will bless You as long as I live;
in Your name I will lift up my hands.
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.
For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise;
He is to be feared above all gods.
I Chronicles 16:25
Ascribe to the LORD the glory due His name;
worship the LORD in the splendor of His holiness.
Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever;
wisdom and power are His.
Exalt the LORD our God and worship at His footstool;
He is holy.
You ar worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor
and power, for You created all things,
and by Your will they were created and have their being.
A panorama allows for an unbroken view of the whole region surrounding an observer. A praiseorama allows us an unbroken view of God’s environment.
My Reader, I encourage you to develop your own praiseorama. Surround yourself with praise – shout it out! Psalm 22:3 says that the Lord inhabits the praises of His people. So, as you praise Him, He comes into your presence. The Lord surrounds you when you praise Him. A praiseorama creates an awesome environment that is more than just a grouping of pictures. A praiseorama becomes a spectacular manifestation of the Lord.
