Oh! Sing Praises! is a praise and worship devotional that teaches one how to become a passionate worshiper and how to have an intimate relationship with God. This book is an in-depth study of the Biblical principles of praise and worship that will help a worshiper stay committed to God, no matter what circumstances are encountered in life. Why is this devotional different from any other? I explain in detail, 12 different types of praises that are all scripture-based. Some may be familiar, while others are introduced to elevate ones awareness to a higher level of worship. I give answers to questions like: "What does it mean when we say, "Bless the Lord?" Or, "What does hallelujah really mean?" Praises to God are like keys that unlock doors to our lives, and praises bring harmony to a stressed, depressed life. In addition, I've also written this book as an accompaniment for choir orientation; to train, instruct, and edify the choir member. The "Journal of Selah", in the back of this book is used as a choir devotional to assist the worshiper in keeping maintenance of God's word in their heart and a journal to write their intimate thoughts. Even though the emphasis of churches should heavily stem from the "Proclamation of the Gospel" through the Word of God, a huge percentage of churches stem from one's perception and appearance of the well-inspiring voices of a choir, or a dynamic praise and worship team. Oh! Sing Praises! is written to spiritually prepare the choir; to attain more knowledge about worship; and to understand as to why we sing unto the Lord. Ultimately, when choir members understand the purpose of their calling, they become more effective in their presentation of song. With this in mind, there is a "Preaching to the Choir" section at the end of each chapter to assist choir members, ministers of music, soloists and musicians to sharpen their tools as they acknowledge who they are as anointed minstrels of God.
