"Oh that men would praise the Lord!"

In the one hundred and seventh Psalm the writer reiterates this refrain: "Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!" Praise and thanksgiving have been common forms of worship in many ages and evidently effective forms.

In Christian Science we find gratitude to be very helpful in lifting thought above the false evidence of sickness and sin. Is it because God answers us when we worship Him? Or is He a capricious God who will bless us only as we praise Him? No, the effect of gratitude is to bring us into harmony with the divine Principle of the universe, to bring our thinking under the control of the one divine Mind.
