There are so many ways you can PRAISE the Lord! You can sing, dance, play instruments, shout and do physical movements to do this! It’s not hard or difficult – it’s super easy… but the trick is… you have to mean it. You can’t do these things just because your friend is doing it or because someone on TV is doing it. God wants  you to do praise Him because you mean it :0)
