Help in Praising God: Attributes of God, A to Z

by Cindy Bleuler Tucker, with the participation of many Facebook friends.

 

Compiled by Cindy Bleuler Tucker

 I have difficulty praising God when I pray. I love God, I stand in awe of Him, but I get tongue-tied and my mind becomes blank. It seems easy to ask God for stuff or thank Him for answering my prayer, but I often stop there.

Author Janet Thompson suggests “one way to praise God is simply to acknowledge His attributes…One way I like to praise God, especially in a group setting, is going through the alphabet and naming the qualities that start with each letter…” I decided that I would use the forum of Face Book. For about a month, I posted the challenge “Name an attribute of God that begins with… and then I would name an attribute- God is…

Some of my FB friends participated. There were some of my friends that gave an attribute nearly every day. I would regularly go back and check my notifications and so blessed by the comments. I wrote each answer down and below is a compilation of that list. I think a great devotional time would be taking one attribute each day and meditating on it.

I would like to thank my FB friends Julie Hoelter Bishop, Sharon Blair, Carol Kilgore Brown, Joshua Brown, Becky Cochran, Pam-Terry Cole, Karen George Joking Comedienne, Launa Cooke, Marie Drake, Barry Farmer, Cindi Bleuler Fayette, LarryDeb Fleming, Jamie Fugate, Amy Day Gilbert, Jerre Lynn Easton Gilstrap, Angela Smith Hasty, Karen Sue Hale, Tammy Howard, Christina Hurley, Willa Williamson Ibach, Audrey Jones, Susan Langley Kemp, Rebecca Landis, Margee Lee, Kelly Ross Madewell, Keri Tucker Motley, Clay Newsome, Becky Millican Norris, Brad Patterson, Coy Lanley Patton, Donna Holder Pope, Kay Helton Provonsha, Libby Barnett Putman, Sheri Dillingham Repenning ,Shelia Childers Ridings, Caren Southerland, Kim Starke, Cindy Scoggins, Cathy Scott, Renee Tarpley, Bonnie Ezell Tinker, Sharon Denise Tinney, Louise Tucker, Michelle Tucker, Holly Clarke Vickery, Diana Dalton Wehrmann, Jamey White, and Janet Cerutti White for their contributions to this list.

Hi! I'm Cindy, and I am a retired teacher, wife, and mother of a 20 year old. I am a Christian with great interest in living for the Lord in my daily life. My Christian worldview permeates every thing I do and say, at least when my sin doesn't get in the way! My family and friends are very important to me. I have a great interest in the Blble, moral issues, politics, books music, and popular culture. I love writing, going to church activities, swimming, and exercising. I have a personal interest in disability and adoption issues. I write devotionals, political commentary, reviews, poetry, and some fiction and I guess whatever I feel like. I guarantee you will not agree with me on everything. I welcome your constructive comments and hope we can have a great sharing of the minds.
